France 2019.  122 minutes.  In French and Italian with English subtitles.

Directed by Celine Sciamma.  Starring: Adele Haenel and Noemie Merlant.

This is the fourth feature by French film maker Céline Sciamma as director, coming after WATER LILLIES, TOMBOY and GIRLHOOD. Like Paul Thomas Andersons’ PHANTOM THREAD, which is full of secret messages which are only obvious once you know where to find them, this glorious, spare and heartfelt story is about two women coding their feelings onto worldly things, and that precedes the birth of love. Sciamma’s, recurring obsession in all of her films, is with marginalised people and their social microcosms at times of discovery and growth. Her stories are driven by naturalistic events, but powered by emotions too huge to be fully articulated.
