I didn't expect much from this movie. THE PAINTED VEIL maybe - is one of the most simple movie out there, yet it's predictable. Predictable? Yes. I bet you've ever seen this kind of romance in other movies. Frankly, there's nothing special in its romance theme, about adultery. But THE PAINTED VEIL didn't become an ordinary movie. Thanks to Naomi Watts and Edward Norton superb acting. They have deeper characterization
The first time I saw this film was ten years ago when it came out, and I admit I really didn't remember much from it, that's why I was quite surprised at how much I liked this film this time around. Although it technically is a fairly standard romantic story, I think it was told really well. The photography is stunning and the music is splendid, but for me Naomi Watts was the highlight, she's simply amazing.
Superb cinematography, exquisite score, production design, and good performances. Although the script is straightforward and a bit narrow in scope, it doesn't overstep its bounds and remains consistent throughout (minus a strange flashback). A beautiful movie about forgiveness and the story of a marriage. Cinematography that was ahead of its time.
Un filme bastante ameno con una historia, que aunque ha sido contada innumerables veces no aburre en ningún momento. Con movimientos pausados y encuadres sutiles, Edward Norton y Naomi Watts nos llevan de la mano por una historia de desamor y amor. Las actuaciones son bastante buenas y la dirección exquisita. Totalmente recomendable.
Historia de personajes arrastrados inevitablemente por las circunstancias del deseo y decepción que significa la búsqueda de pareja. El castigo se vuelve efectivo cuando evita que la conducta se siga repitiendo, lamentablemente con el tiempo pierde su efectividad, más si se suma la complejidad de las personas al pensar que están enamoradas o de alguna manera creen estar atadas al objeto de afecto.
MUJERES de Nuestra VIDA, Disturbio y Bendición, La Alabanza Más Grande y a la VEZ Nuestra Mayor Perdición y Absoluta REDENCIÓN. DIOS MISMO LAS AMA Y LAS BENDICE y las PROTEGE de Nuestras Burdas Decisiones de CHANGOS TOMADAS, otorgándoles a la vez el BENDITO DON, De La Seducción y LA VIDA MISMA…
This movie is terrible. I was so disappointed with the performance of two great actors. Script stupidly predictable. Comical moment when the sick Norton turns his face to his wife and his make up style "Night of the living dead" reveals that he is dying. Very upsetting
