PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE is a French period drama in which a young female artist is commissioned to paint the portrait of a woman about to enter an arranged marriage.

Nudity

There is breast and buttock nudity, some of which occurs after two women have made love. There is a scene in which the two women are together and one of them massages a substance, which it is implied is an opiate, into the armpit of the other woman in an erotic manner. In a suggestive image, one woman's naked pubic region is covered by a mirror in which the other woman gazes at her reflection. There is also pubic nudity in a non-sexualised context.

There is a scene in which an abortion procedure is performed, but this is undetailed and carries a focus on the distress of the woman involved. There are also undetailed references to a suicide.
