      Movies about artists are always unsatisfactory

      After reading the special features on the plate, I understood what some scenes in the movie wanted to describe. The idea is very good, but the performance is too bland, and most of the scenes are not understood, not to mention the "shocked" or "really good handling" "Such a feeling.
      The heroine's facial expression has basically not changed, and it is impossible to speculate on her state of mind. Maybe it is because the novel is written in the first person, and there is no hint of the...

      2008-01-16 Girl with a Pearl Earring ("Girl with a Pearl Earring")

      2008-01-16 Girl with a Pearl Earring ("The Girl with a Pearl Earring")
        finished the second half of "The Girl with a Pearl Earring" last night. For a time, I was reluctant to continue reading, thinking of finding a suitable time to read it. When I read the introduction on the cover, there was such a sentence "a love and hate", which made me think it was an imperfect love, and I just like the ending of the comedy. However, when I opened the book again, I knew that I would fall into it again

      The scariest thing in this world than a bad scumbag is a cowardly scumbag.

      Another scumbag story. .
      On bili, the most agreeable barrage is that he neither respects the original partner nor the mistress. In the final analysis, he is a self-centered man who is led by lust and likes the new and hates the old.
      Even if his wife is not only ugly, but also has no good temper. Giving other people's things is a very, very, very contrary to basic morality. He painted that picture without telling his wife, and did not show it to his wife. At this moment, Scarlett's...

      stop at ideas

      A very beautiful literary film, because the picture is too beautiful, it took a long time to finish it a little bit.

           Metaphors and lens language express many facts that have not yet happened. The pious girl wears a headscarf, but her hair is seen by the painter; the artist pierces the ears of the naturally chaste girl, bleeds, hurts, and puts on a woman's pearl earrings. Immediately afterwards, the scene of kissing but not kissing could not hide the lust that was about to come...

      See how writers and directors interpret the questions in famous paintings and restore the artist's creative process

      If you were to name a few famous paintings, "Girl with a Pearl Earring" would probably come out on top. Everyone who sees this painting will be attracted by this girl who looks back with teardrop-shaped white pearl earrings. The indigo blue turban and brown clothes wrap the image of restraint and chastity of the girl. In the serene picture, the bright star-like eyes and the soft and slightly open lips exude a youthful and charming luster, and the mystery of wanting to talk. Beautiful skin is...

      The most beautiful movie I've seen so far, with my favorite actors Scarlett and Murphy, so satisfying. Make sure you're in a good mood before watching a movie, and look a little stuffy when you're...

      Every picture is beautiful, oil painting texture. Scarlett is so beautiful. But it's enough of a story about the bully, the weak, the sensitive, the beautiful and the vulnerable female characters, the master and the maid, and the overbearing artist president who fell in love with me. There are too many stories of this kind of girl who was harassed and lost her job. However, because of the success of the work, it has been beautified and interpreted as a legend that will last forever. It must be...

      The ambiguous film of the male master and the maid, although it has been changed a bit from the novel, the light and shadow have obviously improved the quality of the film. In any era, level determines the ending of...

      Scarlett Johansson has the wrong eye color and is too dusty! No wonder Simon Schama said "The maid, without a doubt, is the most dangerous of all women." Seeing Vermeer's wife, daughter, the maid who poured the milk, the maid who was actually the mother-in-law... Some of the light was wrong. BTW Isn't the woman with the pearl necklace Vermeer's eldest daughter, Maria, who was 12 at the...

      The essence of this film lies in reluctantly maintaining an impossible balance in the suppression and indulgence of desire, and the director reads out the essence of this...

    Movie plot

    The young girl Greye is the daughter of a painter. Because her father is blind and has a poor family, her mother had to let her carry simple luggage to help the rich. Thus, Greet came to the home of the painter Vermeer. In this seemingly wealthy family, Vermeer leads a stable and decent life with his wife, mother-in-law and six children. But in fact, this is just a prosperous appearance. Vermeer's pregnant wife was jealous, completely...

    Evaluation action

    As an insightful art film, the film abandons the grand narrative, and there are only small stories, small characters and small sentiments, but the audience can see the style of the times from it.  . Every shot in the film is as beautiful and exquisite as a classical oil painting. Although the film’s narrative level has a certain fictional composition, when it comes to processing visual modeling, whether it is the setting of the scene,...

    Movie quotes

    • Pieter: Don't get caught up in his world.

      Griet: I may only be a maid, but I would NEVER give in to Master Van Ruijven!

      Pieter: I wasn't talking about Van Ruijven...

    • Van Ruijven: Griet, come here. What were you doing today? I missed you. We both did. I hear you've been of great use to your master, pretty Griet. All that grinding and stirring, eh? Master and maid. Its a tune we all know. And you can practice together, now.

    • Griet: [enters the room, where Maria Thins and Catharina sit quietly by the fireplace, and curtsies]

      Catharina: Yes?

      Griet: Madam, shall I wash the windows?

      Catharina: [Scoffs] You don't need to ask me about such matters.

      Griet: It's may change the light.

      [both Catharina and Maria Thins stare at Griet questioningly]
