Girl with a Pearl Earring – long time favourite

The Girl with the Pearl Earring by J Vermeer“Girl with a pearl Earring” directed by Peter Webber starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth belongs to my long time favourite movies. as a matter of fact I love everything about it, the shots that are artistic and resemble oil paintings, the acting of characters, the way the director creates moods and enables us to feel the emotions even though the characters remain silent. There is electricity in the air.

It kind of makes me think about Patrick’s Suskind book “Perfume” in a sense of mastering the expression of emotions and sensual experiences.

I have to say Judy Parfitt and Essie Davies need to be noted as well.
