Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" is its own, wondrous, magnificent thing; a complete artistic vision where every directorial step is refined and each thematic probe, seamlessly weaved in. ...Sciamma's gift to 2019 sets a highest standard for any romance that will come after it.
Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good ...a Three-Alarm Romance... Céline Sciamma's film is a timeless work of art. ...one of the most beautiful and transporting films you will ever see. ...though the film sizzles with an erotic heat that grows from initial repression, Sciamma is not pedaling softcore lesbian porn.
Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average Portrait of a Lady on Fire is at its most beguiling and probing when the rest of the world feels far away. The film frustrates when it feels compelled to elucidate those struggles in words, or through a hokey flashback structure... Sciamma's script has more than a handful of dazzling turns of phrase...
The Guardian Full Review
Excellent ...gripping 18th-century story of obsession demonstrates a new mastery of classical style... I was on the edge of my seat. Portrait of a Lady on Fire has something of Alfred Hitchcock... Sciamma brings the erotic together with the cerebral.
