Older teens and adults will enjoy. Book is better.

The film is an intriguing speculative account of the creation of one of Vermeer's most famous and sensual paintings. Every shot in the film looks like it was taken right out of a painting from Delft, Holland circa 1665...

The movie benefits greatly from Johansson's gift for understated delivery, but she's less assured in this demure, largely non-verbal role than she was as a modern young woman in Ghost World and Lost in Translation.

An entertaining but inauthentic adaptation, a production which reads more like a Hollywood teensploit than a historical epic from Holland.

... a movie about a kind of understanding that rarely passes between human beings; a solemn, sacred meeting of minds.

Like the finest of Vermeer's paintings, the film's richly textured elements blend perfectly, unforgettably framed.

Girl with a pearl earring (...) is a movie of few words and beautiful pictures, and the story is as understated as the acting.
July 20, 2004
A terrifically realised film, startlingly emotional and wonderfully visceral.

To watch Girl With a Pearl Earring is to sense that one great photograph after another is unfolding before the eyes.

... the true star of this film is Eduardo Serra, who should have had the Oscar. Sweeping fantasy vistas are easy; creating a sensual feast through the camera's lens is hard.

Every year or so a movie gets released that is cherished more for its look than its actual content.

The novel is trimmed down to almost a vignette telling the story of the model for Vermeer's most famous painting. This is art director Christina Schaffer's film.

Webber's film drips with art, but it doesn't exactly inspire deeply felt emotion.
