Lemonade Posted March 5, 2008 Report Share Posted March 5, 2008 Doesn't have to be new, just tell us the last film you watched and what you thought of it.Last night I watched "Girl With A Pearl Earring". I knew nothing about the movie, knew nothing about the painting (in fact I didn't even know it was a real painting until it tells you at the end) and I really only bought it because it's got Scarlett Johansen in it. And would you nae?Anyway, despite some of the dialogue being pretty old fashioned and occasionally difficult to follow it was a pretty enjoyable movie. It built up a lot of chemistry between the dowdy but beautiful maid (Johansen) and the great painter (and master of the house) Vermeer (played by Colin Firth) without actually showing anything happen between them apart from the most subtle of things. It's visually stunning, set in the wintertime in Holland in the 1600s, and though the story moves a little slowly it was still one of those movies that you can't take your eyes off. Really enjoyed it. thumbs up Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
