TV Tip: “Seraphine” by Tukor and Yolande Morio


France 1912: German art dealer Wilhelm Uhde (Ulrich Tukur) initially did not think much of his new housekeeper Seraphim (Yolande Moro). But then he discovered her talent as a painter and began to encourage the self-taught woman. When the global financial crisis broke out, he unexpectedly walked away, where Seraphim went insane.

The relationship between Martin Provost’s educated city dweller and the devout and nature-loving country beach is beautifully reserved. She does not rely on big drama, but on daily observations: when Seraphine climbs a tree, her stern face suddenly begins to glow. The film is shot in very muted colors on the screen in dark green, gray and brown, which makes the colorful images of the seraph more effective. Seraphine Lewis, who died in a psychiatric hospital in 1942, is today considered one of the most important representatives of pure painting. (Ah)
