I thought the movie was wonderful. I knew nothing about the artist and the music.and how he lived and the imagination to paint the way he did without having the surroundings that he put into the paintings. There should be more movies like this profiling other artists who did such wonderful work.

Excellent! Highly recommended! Please offer more movies like this! This movie presented an outstanding blend of history, culture, music, art history, and biography of the artist.

A quiet but passionate exploration of Vermeer, his contemporaries, and their depiction of music as part of the lives of the time and what it signified. Beautifully done.

If you like Vermeer, you'll love this movie. A chance to see most of the extant paintings in one place, accompanied with period music and fine commentary by experts.

This film was concise and interesting. It gave a snapshot into the amazing work of Vermeer and illuminated facts regarding the period in which he lived. The quality of images was outstanding. I did enjoy the film as I am a "seasoned" art educator. The content is appropriate for all ages but the movie is too long for kids and lacking in "entertaining action" to keep them focused.
