Berthe Morisot by Caroline Champetier (France, 2012, 95 min.). Morisot was one of few women in the French Impressionist circle who portrayed a wide range of subjects from landscapes to portraits. This movie focuses on the early years of Morisot’s prolific career and a chance encounter with Édouard Manet that changes her life. The charming and enigmatic Manet finds inspiration in Morisot’s art and physical beauty and encourages her to keep painting, despite her parents’ demands that she finish her career and get married.
