View Full Version : Girl With A Pearl Earing (2003)
Peter Webber's awesome pic about a maid working in the house of painter Johannes Vermeer becoming his talented assistant and the model for one of his most famous works. Scarlett Johansson was enchanting as ever, even with hardly any dialogue, and Colin Firth portrayed Vermeer with amazing character. The DVD came with a revealing Behind The Scenes documentary with itself was pretty damn good. One scene showed old Venice in Winter, with actors in costume strolling about the canal, and a giant yellow bulldozer half burried in the canal trying to break the ice that had formed over the water. The image was quite surreal in itself.
I still need to watch that movie. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif I heard and read only good words about it.
Indeed Joseph. I thought of you when Colin Firth appeared on screen. He's the quintessential French artist. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
Frensh? Is this a joke tlr? :confused: Vermeer is Dutch, as well as i am.
Sorry. My mistake. ;)
Still, you thought of me. That is appreciated. :D
I read Girl With A Pearl Earring. Very good read. I'll have to see the movie too, I hope it's as good as the book. :D
Oh you bought this one tlr. I keep picking it up in the shop, so very tempted, then keep thinking nah. I just can't decide.
Net. Three for £20 in HMV atm. I picked up Girl With A Pearl Earing, The Beach (lost my original copy) and Chocolat.
Works out at 6.50 a pop. Not bad really.
Joseph. What do you think she's thinking?
I suppose I shouldn't worry so much about buying it. If I don't like I can easily take it back and change it, or get a refund. I've just had a DVD spending spree tlr, just had 9 delivered yesterday from amazon :D

http://prints.com/imgage.php?f=380-DP143.jpg&h=250&w=350&ln=Vermeer I have the impression she is not thinking, but exploring her feelings. new feelings that surprise her a little, examining his (the painter's) face, asking herself who she is because she does not know herself anymore in front of this man...
Today i nearly bought it. I had it in my hands. A 2 dvd set. Price was €20,-. Oops. I'll do it later.
I DID buy Amélie btw.
Oh hell i haven't even time to watch movies these days, weeks.

Um, the Star Trek films I'm missing, most of them 2 DVD special editions. *Drools...
Live long, and prosper :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

LOL tlr. I wouldn't exactly describe myself as a trekkie. Just because I want to be Spock has nothing to do with it! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif :D
goes and twangs ears
My favourite was Voyager, with Captain Janeway. I loved the premise of that series. Total disconnection, the Enterprise and the quadrant becoming the world and everything in it.
I'd love to be able to take a vacation from planet earth, and all the **** attached to it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
The Next Generation is my second favourite.
Voyager was great (the run seemed so short though), and Janeway a great character. It's difficult to say my favourite. Voyager and Deep Space 9 on equal footing for me I think.
