Story about 1600's Holland and a class struggle during that period between a maid, a painter, his wife, and their benefactor. Extremely well done. One of my favorite movies. Colin Firth should have won best actor for this movie.

I really like the film adaptation of the Girl with a Pearl Earring novel. The attention to historic detail is fantastic, the acting is great, and the music is beautiful. It's somewhat slow, but I think that's part of its charm. I hope it comes to Blu-Ray at some point, the DVD version doesn't look very crisp.

Delicate, for those who like softness

A wonderful film that speculates on the creation of one of the masterpieces of Vermeer. A 16-year-old peasant girl becomes the subject of the famous painter's work. Vermeer's wife is jealous with Griet who is harrassed by Vermeer's patron. Neither Vermeer or Griet have a thought of maintaining relationships, no words of love are pronounced, but the viewer understands that both of them have deep feelings which are coveyed through glances, gestures, silence and a few words about the essence of art. The film is a good example of the detals' symbolism.

Atmospheric but fictional story behind the painting of the famous picture. The film captures the tension in the relationships as people try to use a servant girl to meet their own ends.

Visually stunning, but lacks of emotions

An intriguing drama centered on the strong sexual tension between Johannes Vermeer and a woman who would supposedly become the subject of his most famous painting - but even if visually stunning, the result could have been a bit more involving.

Visually stunning but the lack of substance and excessive lengthiness make it a definite snoozer.

Content to be simple, with subtle performances and some very serene moments.

So boring I turned it off

Love the painting. Love both actors and even the way the director chose the grainy way of presenting life in the 17th century, but really, it's a bit of a dud.

Good script and fine acting at a snails pace but still a worthy watch.

I somehow feel that the book should be better. The movie is okay.

Pearl earring? Did the dude pull out at a funny angle or something?

Every shot is a painting; every silence is the best dialogue. It's a striking remainder of the beauty and intensity that filmmaking has.
