Storyline

Teresa is not like her female colleagues. She cannot enjoy that kind of simple minded pleasure like watching males stripping. There is that Dutch painting in the museum she is fascinated of. Over and over she sits in front of it just staring at the young Dutch guy on it. One day the scenery on the painting becomes alive... Written by Oliver Heidelbach

A special, magical movie, a must-see
6 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I loved "The Dutch Master" and thought it was well made, a really special movie and rather magical, and am looking

for a video copy I can buy somewhere.

Unfortunately, the charisma that emanated from Sorvino in The Dutch Master is lacking in other films.

What appealed to me - and what I saw for the first time in a TV-movie - was the actors turning to the camera to comment on the plot, resp. the character played by Sorvino. This method was copied in the first episodes of "Sex and the City", by the way.

A great short film!
