How Rembrandt lived his life through the eyes of relatives
15 February 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Rembrandt en Ik (Rembrandt and I)

The Story:

This is a biography of Rembrandt van Rijn the famous painter who lived in the Golden Century in the Netherlands. The whole series are told through the eyes of relatives of Rembrandt van Rijn. All of them have some sort of affection for him. Every part of the series has a different story teller. The series gives you a realistic insight in how Rembrandt lived his live and why he made his choices. (8.5)

The Scenery:

In Rembrandt en Ik (Rembrandt and I), all scenes are captured in the Netherlands, in places where Rembrandt himself could have lived. cities as Leiden, where Rembrandt van Rijn has born, and Amsterdam, where he lived the second part of his live, as the field trips he makes at a typical dutch farmland scenery. This makes the series very real. (8.5/10)

The Acting:

The overall casting of dutch players I think is quite good. Both Dragan Bakema, who played the "young" Rembrandt, as Michiel Romeyn, who played the old Rembrandt, could bring over the strong emotions that Rembrandt had in his live. Some players, with a small role, where not as good as players in the main casting. (7.5/10)

Sound:

The series is hold together with the same theme song which I think fits perfect with the story. It represents the doubt, the anger, and all other strong feelings in the series. (9/10)

Conclusion: (8.4/10)

I think this is one of the better dutch series I have seen. Very realistic dutch scenery, A lot of paintings of Rembrandt to be seen, The acting is above par and the music is great.
