It's just like the French to turn what was probably sexual assault into a romance. If only that it was the way it really happened!

Artemisia Gentileschi really was the first Florentine woman painter. This film is beautifully done but it's not a NICE story. Religion, politics and customs of the day put pay to NICE.
