The Lady in the Portrait | Le Portrait interdit (15)

The Lady in the Portrait is a sumptuous epic which evokes the unique rapport between a French missionary (Melvil Popaud) and the Manchurian Empress (Fan Bingbing) whose portrait he’s ordered to paint.

The film follows in the fine tradition of stories about the attraction between famous painters and their muses such as Girl with a Pearl Earring and Caravaggio.

Exquisitely-costumed and voluptuously shot, the film reveals life in the Qing Dynasty court.

Dir Charles de Meaux
