Movie Reviews

rauova | Colorado Plains | 02/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Georgeous movie which inspired the whole family. Our son, (16 yrs old) is in IB art class, spent the whole evening checking the facts about Jan Vermeer and Dutch paintings."
Brush With Fate
Aldo C. D'Eredita | Richland, Iowa | 01/12/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was a very good movie, the only thing is, is that you have to watch it twice to really get an understanding on the sequence of where and to whom the painting was passed down. Those sequences can be a bit confusing if your not paying attention. Glenn Close gives a wonderful performance as the spinster Professor with a secret. The twist at the end of the movie took me by surprise. A very informative and educational film on one of the works of Vermeer and what could have possible happened to some of the greatest masterpieces we may never see. I highly recommend this movie to history buffs, art lovers and anyone who likes movies with a bit of a twist at the end."
A moving view of art, and real life's compromises

"excellent portrayel of artistic needs, sacrifices, and bigotry and class prejudices. A really great period piece."
Beautiful Scenery, bad plot, bad acting
Frieslander | Bogota, D.C., Colombia | 12/26/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this movie to see the Dutch scenery. I could barely get through the movie though and I'm too embarrassed to lend it to anyone. Glenn Close also did a poor job."
