Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rembrandt (DVD)
Wonderfully creaky black n' white film set mostly in Amsterdam, following the tribulations of Rembrandt, who is at this point already established as a successful artist. However, there is a certain emphasis on his personal/domestic life so any illumination on his ideas, inspirations and techniques is sadly lacking. The leading actor has an authoratitive air and carries the part admirably, but I can't help thinking that a well-presented modern rendition is screaming out to be realised (film directors, producers and money-men take note). Or a Beeb costume drama perhaps? This Master is permanently in vogue and justifies a contemporary version of his story, and to explain why he still stands out from the crowd.
