Sraphine was the big winner at the 2009 Cesar awards ceremony in Paris this year. Nominated in nine categories, Seraphine came away with seven Cesar wins including Best Actress for Yolande Moreau, Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Score, Best Art Direction and Best Costumes.
Based on a true story, Sraphine centers on Sraphine de Senlis (Moreau), a simple and profoundly devout housekeeper whose brilliantly colorful canvases now adorn some of the most famous galleries in the world. Wilhelm Uhde (Tukur), a German art critic and collector - he was the first Picasso buyer and discoverer of nave primitive painter Le Douanier Rousseau - discovers her paintings while she is working for him as a maid in the beautiful countryside of Senlis near Paris in the early part of the 20th century. A moving and unexpected relationship develops between the avant-garde art dealer and the visionary cleaning lady.
If you're in the mood for a gentle, unsentimental film, where the director has made choices that are intelligent and thoughtful, seek this out. Jason Di Rosso MovieTime, ABC Radio National
May be about a minor artist, but it's a major success.
