First of all I'd like to boast myself, because finally I've passed my test for driving licence!!! It was the second try. 30th August!

And something to Lueka
I'm glad that someone reads and enjoy my posts. I need to admit that I haven't seen "Mała matura 1947", but for sure I will. Honestly I haven't seen a good polish film for a long time :-)


Girl with a pearl earring/ Dziewczyna z perłą

This movie is an adaptation of Tracy Chevalier book. It is an imaginary story, which tries to find out in what way the Johannes Vermeer's painting entitled "Girl with a pearl earring" was created.
The main character is a young girl (Griet), which started to be a maid in Johannes Vermeer's home to help her family. Unexpectedly between Griet and the painter awakes mutual fascination. Although outwardly they differ about everything, they have one thing in common. It is an artistic sensivity. The painter found out his muse. The result of their "relation" is an amazing painting!

Not many words in this film, because they aren't necessary. Really important were gestures, looks, and yearning for intimacy. And even though nothing has happened, their sensation remained not realised, we can feel an erotic atmosphere all the time. Without naked bodies the actors were able to show that kind of emotion.

What about the cast, I'm not objective. I really like both of the main characters, I mean Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth. They are perfect in these roles to me. Especially Scarlett, she was definitely "the main character". In my opinion she proved that she's very talented. What about Colin he wasn't so clear, because it was difficult to compare with Scarlett, but his character was played good enough.

I want to warn that not everybody can like this film. If you need much action, complicated stories, and mysteries, it's not for you. The rest people can enjoy this movie, admiring artistry of the authors.

My mark is


Enjoy watching!

I don't prefer movies about love. /I hate action movies, but complicated stories and mysteries - yeah It's my favourite elements in movies:)/ But You know there are such movies about love which are better than most others movies. I guess:This film belongs to these ones. Love story which I love is also 'A walk to remember'...
By the way I consider that the best actor is Johnny Depp.

And of course congratulations!
