Review
On the eve of WW1 famed German art critic Wilhelm Uhde retreated from the pressures of urban life to stay in a small village just outside Paris. Here he noticed some stunningly vibrant artwork only to discover that it was done by his somewhat cuckoo cleaning lady. Thus began an association that propelled the peasant Seraphine de Senlis to fame as an artist, but not before she'd blown her lid and been permanently incarcerated in a psychiatric hospital.
'Seraphine' deservedly swept the board at the 2009 French Cesars, including best film.
