Séraphine DVD - 2008 film directed by Martin Provost. Based on the life of French painter Séraphine de Senlis.

The cleaning lady is a rather rough-and-ready forty-year-old woman who is the laughing stock of others. One day, Wilhelm who has been invited by his landlady, notices a small painting lying about in her living room. He is stunned to learn that the artist is no other than Séraphine. Stars Yolande Moreau and Ulrich Tukur. Unrated in the U.S., but rated PG in Canada. Optional English subtitles. 121 minutes.
