Adapted from the book by Tracy Chevalier, Webber's sumptuously upholstered film deals with the story behind the creation of Vermeer's famous painting. Marred by miscasting and an overly literal approach to the cinematography, this is a major disappointment: a fascinating story has been rendered into a dull, syrup-thick tale of love and peasantry.
