How did a humble cleaning woman become the toast of the avant-garde art world? This beautifully lensed biopic attempts to answer that question and arrives on American shores with seven César Awards under its belt for its efforts. Actress Yolande Moreau (The Beaches of Agnès) fully embodies the manic, often delusional Frenchwoman who suffers poverty, obscurity and two world wars, yet finds refuge in her primitive genius artwork. In French with English subtitles. 125 minutes PG.
