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.

Well done documentary concentrating primarily on a set of Vermeer's paintings in the National Gallery , London. Good interviews and discussions of these, and a few other pieces of the period.

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.

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.
