As this keenly observant biographical film about the “modern primitive” French painter Séraphine Louis shows, the execution of an outsider artist’s work is no less inspired than a trained one’s. Discovered in her hometown of Senlis by a German art critic (Ulrich Tukur) in 1914, when she was in her 40s and working as a washerwoman, Séraphine (Yolande Moreau) was never fully accepted by the public and ended up in a mental hospital, where she died in 1942. Her extraordinary, erotically charged florals live on in the world’s greatest museums. Directed by Martin Provost; Moreau won Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival and from the National Society of Film Critics. In French; subtitled. (Not rated, 125 min.)
