Un filme pausado y sutil que no sólo trata sobre el famoso Vermeer, sino que logra plasmar una atmósfera similar a la de sus pinturas. La fotografía es aquí lo más destacado. La actuación de Johansson es bastante buena. Es en general una buena película sobre arte, belleza y amor. La sutileza de la música y la fotografía logran transportar al espectador a Europa del siglo XVII. Muy recomendable.
You don't know. You get mixed up. What is it? Drama, romance, biography, protection from prostitution, how painters work, insights of creativeness? Anyway. For sure it is a portrait masterpiece and the movie impressively tells us, how it happened. Unforgettable. Great 19-year-old Scarlett Johansson, starting point of her career.
beautifully filmed in a manner that reflects the character of the paintings at issue – that alone raises this story to a level of beauty. Colin Firth? Well, he doesn;'t quite do it, but sufficiently so to make this film work. I watched with an artists friend and we both loved it.
I didn't have many expectations going into this film as I had never read the book, and to be honest I was worried it would be difficult to keep me interested. But quite the contrary was true. From the first few moments I was entranced with the characters, story, and cinematography. An enjoyable movie with wonderful acting.
