Well, it made me look up all Vermeer‘s paintings. I guess that’s a positive thing.
Looks pretty. Every shot is lined with atmosphere and amaxing lighting. Cudos for the feeling of being in a painting. Also the indoors aspects seem to give an insight into what it must have been like in the 1600s. The paints used and their mixing was also an education but the slow, dull nature of the script was nothing I want to see again. More of a documentary than a film.
There was a very slight amount of drama but not much. All performances were wonderful. Scarlett looked and acted every bit the simple maid, Colin and Joanna were well cast as usual. Direction, lighting, settings, all superb and created the world of Delft in 1650s. It was the boredom of the plot that killed it. There’s no reason to watch.
Nothing happens. Just when you think something intriguing is about to go down… nope. Nothing.
I guess it was like looking at a painting: Very interesting but nothing moves so you have to put a lot of effort in yourself to try to imagine what it was like making the thing.
Watch if on TV?
