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

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.

Enter the world of Vermeer and learn about the Netherlands in the 17th century. Both a wide-angle view of the time and an intimate view of the painter--his life and his art. Fascinating and moving. The paintings are brought to life by the camera and the intelligent interviews. I would have preferred more music and less talking about music. On the whole, worthwhile and enjoyable. Go!

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.
