While this was supposed to be a beautiful story of love, I of course took the side of the father in the film. The girl was so stupid and selfish and hurt so many people especially her father and defied society all in the name of sinful personal gratification.

Interesting biopic (arguably historically inaccurate) of a great artist.

Foreign, French. A very good movie! A must see! Is based on a true story and a real person.

yeah, the historical stuff is pretty spotty, but the story is captivating and the performances are good.

Disappointing, if I remember correctly...and I'm not sure I do because I saw it so long ago and was clearly underwhelmed...

Tu m'as convaincu: "L'histoire de la première femme peintre. "

the performances are amazing even if the story itself is not accurate.

Yes, I know this movie is historically inaccurate, but that doesn't change the fact that this is still a wonderful and intensely erotic film. Artemisia's sexual awakening feels very feel, even if it wasn't, and isn't that what great movie-making is all about? Perhaps a bit too melodramatic at the end, and slow in the beginning, but that doesn't seem to detract too much from the overall beauty of this film.

Ok, so it isn't necessary what really happened, but the story is good and there are special point for spotting the scenes from her painting.

Agréablement surpris, dans la mesure où c'est probablement l'un des thèmes qui me rejoint le moins sur tout cette planète. L'histoire de la première femme peintre. Wow. Quoi de plus passionnant? Non, sincèrement, les trentes premières minutes du film m'ont vraiment ennuyées, principalement par leur approche à l'eau de rose de l'histoire d'Artemisia, une femme rebelle qui osait enfin s'affirmer.

Toutefois, dès qu'on s'aperçoit qu'elle se rebelle par sa naïveté, on se laisse un tantinet charmer par toute cette histoire qui prend vite des allures d'émeute. Et puis, voir Miki Manojlovic parler en français, ça n'a pas de prix. Ah, Underground...

Somehow I'm attracted to movies about painters...

Yes, this movie is historically inaccurate. Fact. But as a story in its own right, a story the writers created to talk about cultural oppression, historical editing, and the female perspective, it is really quite beautiful.

A young renissance artist falls in love with her teacher!

This movie gets marks for cinematic appeal, but the historical inaccuracies were enough to make my eyes bleed.

I liked this film and now am interested in learning more about Artemisia Gentileschi.

Les femmes sont des personnes comme le stipule les billets de 50$ ! Y paraitrait qu'elles peuvent peindre !? Très bon film ;)
