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.

Four stars.

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

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.

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...

hmmmm.... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.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

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.

You and SYS recommended it so warm-heartedly and with expression of pleasure... you both will appear in my thoughts when watching it. :D
