    10 / 10

    It is surgically precise, razor-sharp, crystal clear, and yet you get the feeling that this is done on pure instinct, that this film is the director's extended nerve fibers. For two hours, you are in the hands of a genius. - Emma Gray Munthe

    "Portrait of the Girl on Fire" is about seduction and trust, about love and longing, universal and well-known subjects that are easy for most to relate to. - Jonna Vanhatalo
