Iconic film: Girl with a pearl earring (2003)

Pin It

¡Buenos días chicas! Empezamos la semana hablando de “La joven de la perla” (2003) película basada en la novela histórica (que no verídica) de Tracy Chevalier.

Protagonizada por Colin Firth, Scarlett Johansson y Tom Wilkinson narra la historia de Griet (Johansson) una joven criada que entra a servir en la casa del maestro Vermeer (Firth). Pero resulta que Griet es más que una criada y Vermeer encuentra en ella la modelo y musa ideal para sus cuadros, lo que despierta la ira y los celos de su mujer.

Una obra de arte llevada al cine, convertida en otra obra de arte. Esto es lo que consiguió su director Peter Webber. En la película quisieron acercarse tanto al universo de Vermeer que a veces el espectador tiene la sensación de estar dentro de uno de sus cuadros.

Os doy cinco motivos por los que no os la podéis perder:

- Su perfección fotográfica
- Sus actores
- La minuciosidad de su vestuario (obra de Dien van Straalen)
- La luz de sus escenas (que intenta reflejar el universo pictórico de Vermeer)
- Su perfecta ambientación

¿Ya la habéis visto?
¡Feliz inicio de semana chicas!


Good morning ladies! We start the week talking about “Girl with a pearl earring” (2003) a film based on the historic novel (but not true) written by Tracy Chevalier.

Starred by Colin Firth, Scarlett Johansson and Tom Wilkinson it tells the story of Griet (Johansson) a young girl who arrives to Vermeer’s (Firth) house to become a maid. But it turns out that Griet will become much more than a maid as Vermeer’s finds in her the perfect model and muse for his works. Obviously, that fact provokes the jealousy and rage of his wife.

An artwork brought to cinema and transformed into another artwork. That’s what director Peter Webber achieved. He wanted to recreate Vermeer’s universe so closely that sometimes the spectator has the feeling of being transported inside one of his paintings.

Here you have five reasons not to miss it:

- Its perfect photography
- Its actors
- The meticulousness of its wardrobe (designed by Dien van Straalen)
- The light of its scenes (which tries to reflect Vermeer’s World)
- Its perfect setting

Have you seen it?
Happy beginning of the week!!

















As you can appreciate the resemblance with the original Vermeer's painting is shocking...
