Finally watched ˋportrait of a lady on fire ´ …

The cinematography; the non existence of underly music or noise, unless it was needed; the way the 3 main woman had each a dedicated primary colour, the way the ˋred´ woman was the calm and collected one and the ˋblue woman’ the angry one and the ˋyellow woman ´ the reserved but comforting one; the way they all befriended each other and learned; the way they all laughed for the first time a genuine laugh for an entire evening; the way all of them were strong in their own way, yet their sadness and anger and happiness wasn’t ignored; the way this all was an allegory towards Orpheus and Eurydice; the way the ˋred woman ´ saw the ˋblue woman ´ in a white dress as a hallucination, looking like a ghost and it turning out to have been her wedding dress, the way the ˋred woman ´ went through all 3 primary colours and in the end mirroring the ˋblue woman ´ by wearing a just as golden/yellow dress, symbolising, they both have accepted their fate
