THE LADY IN THE PORTRAIT / LE PORTRAIT INTERDIT (N/C 15+)

An empress (Fan Bingbing) commissions a painting of herself from a French outsider and Jesuit priest (Melvil Poupaud) in hopes of stirring her husband’s interest in this lavish period piece. This juicy tale of art, power, concubines and Catholicism, set in the 18th century imperial court in China, boasts exquisite sets and costumes, and East-meets-West historical exoticism. 

 

Cast Fan Bingbing, Melvil Poupaud, Jin Shi Jye, Huang Jue , Thibault De Montalembert, Féodor Atkine   

Director Charles de Meaux | 2017 | France, China | 103 mins   

Bingbing looks at her finest and definitely fits the part…  Hollywood Reporter
