Saturday Night Movie: Tulip Fever

An artist falls for a young married woman while he's commissioned to paint her portrait during the Tulip mania of 17th century Amsterdam.

Director: Justin Chadwick
Writers: Deborah Moggach (screenplay by), Tom Stoppard (screenplay by) | Deborah Moggach (based upon the novel by)
Stars: Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Jack O'Connell 

1h 45 min /Drama Romance

Thoughts:
Oh yes, it was another boring one. How do I pick these? I try my best. I take the lesser known, many times based on a book and I watch them. It usually takes me a couple of mornings as that is when I watch.

A rich man gets a new wife since he wants a child. He then wants their portrait painted. And his wife hooks up with the painter.

A servant is in love with a man dealing in tulips. The whole town is tulip crazy. 

I do not get how the woman and the painter fell in love. I'd say the best acting was from Holiday Grainger who played Maria, the servant. And of course Christoph Walz is always good.

I can not recommend it. But hey good for a rainy day.

  9. I don't watch a lot of movies or TV but I will be sure to skip this one. Sounds a bit odd.
