Girl with a Pearl Earring...and Eduardo Serra

Yesterday, I have told I was at Mauritshuis, seeing the painting from Vermeer, Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Remember the movie?

Girl with a Pearl Earring



The beautiful photography of this film is from the portuguese Eduardo Serra, for which he won the following awards:

2004 - Girl with a Pearl Earring Best European Cinematographer - European Film Academy
2003 - Girl with a Pearl Earring Best Photography Festival de San Sebastian
2003 - Girl with a Pearl Earring Bronze frog - Camerimage Lodz - Polónia

"Eduardo Serra (born 2 October 1943) is a cinematographer from Lisbon, Portugal, twice nominated for Academy Awards for Best Cinematography.
From 1960 to 1963, Serra studied engineering at Lisbon's Instituto Superior Técnico, but he had to leave the country after his involvement in students' protests against Salazar's dictatorship. He settled in France, where he was accepted to Vaugirard film school in Paris; he graduated in 1966. In 1970 he got his second degree from the University of Paris-Sorbonne, in Art History and Archeology.[1]
Eduardo Serra received Academy Award nominations for Best Cinematography for his work on The Wings of the Dove (1997) and Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003). He has also received BAFTA nominations for his work in these films.
In 2004 Eduardo Serra received the Ordem do Infante D. Henrique, a civilian award presented for services to Portuguese culture, from President Jorge Sampaio.
He will provide the photography for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, released 2010 and 2011."

Oh Sandra! I have never seen this movie, but I need to get it; this is the second time this week that I've had the pleasure of seeing this image and the oil painting. Dutch art is my favorite!! Bisous ma chère, Anita

Yes, I had heard of Eduardo Serra, wonderful! The photography in the film "Girl with..." was really good. And I think that Scarlett Johansson was an ideal "Girl with a Pearl Earring", her face is perfect for that!

Por fim dou sinal de vida!

Tenha um bom ANO de 2010!

Não cheguei a ver este filme mas acho extraordinária a fotografia.
Ainda bem que é de um português e merece todo o nosso orgulho pelo seu sucesso.
