Esthetic and cold as a still life painting
9 September 1999 | by richard-149See all my reviews

This is a very conventional biographic movie. It looks like all the money and efforts have been invested in recreating the paintings of Rembrandt, the decoration, the costumes, but unfortunately, less attention was devoted to finding the soul, to explore new ways to illustrate the success then the misfortune of a genius unfit to live in his own era. The characters are barely sketched, the actors seem to concentrate on looking like the originals -which is well achieved, especially by Rembrandt's wife - but they forget to act, to live. And don't expect any explanation about the nature of the Rembrandt's genius, about the great debates of the 17th Century or the social life in the Netherlands at that time. My guess is that this cold movie will soon be forgotten.
