Tulip Fever review – long-delayed period drama fails to bloom

Alicia Vikander, Christoph Waltz and Judi Dench all find themselves lost in a beleaguered adaptation of a 17th-century potboiler that gradually turns into a far-fetched soap opera

Hollywood film-making is all about big bets, and somewhere along the way, enough reasonable people convinced themselves that a period drama full of corsets, ruffs and tavern wenches set against the 17th-century Dutch tulip market was going to be a hit. But now that Justin Chadwick’s much-delayed adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s novel has finally been released, we must look to the words Alicia Vikander’s love-and-economics-struck Sophia Sandvoort says during her darkest moment: “The fever has broken.”

‘Tulip Fever’ Review: This Bizarre, Long-Delayed Historical Romance Was Not Worth the Wait

‘Tulip Fever’ Review: This Bizarre, Long-Delayed Historical Romance Was Not Worth the Wait
The behind-the-scenes release date drama surrounding Justin Chadwick’s long-delayed and oft-moved “Tulip Fever” has managed to keep the beleaguered Weinstein Company release in the cultural zeitgeist for at least a year longer than it should have. It ping-ponged from a July 2016 release to a February 2017 release, which then moved to August, and then September.

It was not worth the wait. And, judging by the chopped-up feel of the final product (and word from audiences that saw earlier cuts), those well-publicized calendar moves only resulted in a film that’s been repeatedly edited into a bizarre, boring final product that packs as much punch as a light sneeze or a gentle cough. A fever it is not.

Based on Deborah Moggach’s best-selling novel of the same name (and scripted by the author with Tom Stoppard), “Tulip Fever” is set in 17th century Holland, during the height of the eponymous

'Tulip Fever' Review: This D.O.A. Period Piece Should've Died on the Vine

'Tulip Fever' Review: This D.O.A. Period Piece Should've Died on the Vine
Forget fever – this floral-scented fiasco is so lifeless you can barely feel a pulse. Tulip Fever, which was shot in 2014 but only hitting theaters now after years of recutting, retooling and release-date reshuffling, should have been allowed to die on the vine. Is it one of those clunkers that's so godawful it’s great fun? You wish. The film just sits there onscreen like a wilting flower with nothing to nourish it.

On the surface, at least, it looks like a class act, a period piece about the tulip boom in 17th-century Amsterdam.

Harvey Weinstein On The Challenge Of Growing ‘Tulip Fever’

Harvey Weinstein On The Challenge Of Growing ‘Tulip Fever’
Editor’s Note: Harvey Weinstein is an occasional contributor to Deadline when he has something on his mind. A number of years ago I fell in love with a book called Tulip Fever. The rights were controlled by a brilliant producer, Alison Owen. Written by Deborah Moggach, I felt the book had all the makings of a crime fiction Shakespeare In Love — funny, witty, and ironic, but with a great James M. Cain plot twist. It was a true noir that just happened to take place in 1634…

Not coming soon: the star-studded films that almost didn't get released

The release of the oft-delayed period drama Tulip Fever, filmed three years ago, reveals the latest starry project that’s suffered a bungled journey to the screen

There was a time, way back in the simpler, more innocent mists of the early 2000s, when Tulip Fever was a very hot Hollywood property. Deborah Moggach’s bestselling novel, a historical romance set in 17th-century Amsterdam, put dollar signs and golden statuettes in the eyes of producers seeking a period hit in the vein of Shakespeare in Love. Tom Stoppard, that film’s Oscar-winning screenwriter, did the adaptation; Jude Law and Keira Knightley were cast, only for the UK government to seal off the tax loophole enabling its funding.

Alicia Vikander-Starrer “Tulip Fever” Gets Racier Trailer and New Premiere Date

Tulip Fever”: The Weinstein Company

The Weinstein Company’s adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s best-selling novel has been scheduled and rescheduled and rescheduled again, but it looks like we’ll finally see “Tulip Fever’s” passionate and dangerous love affair come alive in a matter of weeks — and its latest red band trailer promises a thrilling and alluring drama worth waiting for.

The newest trailer warns that “seduction is a dangerous art.” Set in 17th century Amsterdam, “Tulip Fever” explores the forbidden affair between Sophia (Alicia Vikander), a married woman, and the man who has been hired to paint her portrait (Dane DeHaan, “Kill Your Darlings”). In an effort to escape Sophia’s husband, a coercing maid, and — to some extent — God himself, the two lovers decide to risk everything in the tulip market.

Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained”) portrays Sophia’s controlling husband. Cara Delevingne (“Suicide Squad”), Holliday Grainger (“Cinderella”), and Judi Dench (“Skyfall”) also co-star.

As we previously reported, Academy Award-winning Vikander has joined the list of actresses who have begun their own production companies. Vikarious’ first feature film, “Euphoria,” is directed by Lisa Lansgeth and will make its debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Vikander also stars in the reboot of “Tomb Raider,” which will hit theaters March 16, 2018.

Tulip Fever” will hit theaters September 1.

After her husband commissions a portrait, she begins a passionate affair with the painter (Dane DeHaan), a struggling young artist. Seeking to escape the merchant’s ever-reaching grasp, the lovers risk everything and enter the frenzied tulip bulb market, with the hope that the right bulb will make a fortune and buy their freedom.

Alicia Vikander-Starrer “Tulip Fever” Gets a New Release Date and Trailer

Tulip Fever”: The Weinstein Company

We’re finally going to get to see “Tulip Fever.” The Alicia Vikander-led romantic drama was originally scheduled to hit theaters last July, but the film’s distributor, The Weinstein Company, pushed back its release until this February, and just days before it was set to bow, “Tulip Fever’s” release was once again postponed. Hopefully the third time’s a charm. The film will — at long last — open in theaters August 25.

Based on Deborah Moggach’s 2007 book of the same name, “Tulip Fever” is set in 17th century Amsterdam and centers on Sophia (Vikander), a young woman married to a much older man (Christoph Waltz, “Django Unchained”). The trailer for the film suggests that Sophia is unhappy in her relationship, and she falls hard and fast for an artist (Dane DeHaan, “Kill Your Darlings”) commissioned to paint her portrait. The two begin an affair, and decide to gamble on the market for tulip bulbs with the hopes of making enough money to run away together.

Vikander won an Oscar in 2016 for her role in “The Danish Girl.” That same year, she launched a production company, Vikarious Productions. The “Ex Machina” actress will topline her company’s first film, Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria,” a drama about two estranged sisters. Eva Green (“Penny Dreadful”) and Charlotte Rampling (“45 Years”) co-star. Vikander is currently filming the upcoming “Tomb Raider” reboot, due March 16, 2018.
