Nightwatching

Directed by Peter Greenaway
Starring: Martin Freeman, Emily Holmes


This film is based on the life of Dutch baroque painter Rembrandt, focusing on the creation of his most famous painting Night Watch. First I thought the film was a stage play but then I noticed that the point was to make the whole film look like a Rembrandt painting. It is visually very pleasing and interesting; the setup of the scenes is unique and odd. I enjoyed watching it because it is so beautiful but rough at the same time. The plot was slightly too boring for me, since I’m not a big fan of the old style of talking, and that just became too monotone. But if you are interested in art and visually beautiful films you should watch it.
