This movie is rather old and I've seen it sometime ago but i was suprpised that many people that I mentioned this movie about have not seen the movie and some even haven't heard of it.
It is a very nice movie and especially valuable if you are interested in Flemish paitings or painting art in general.
The movie is about the story of a painting of Dutch master Vermeer which gave its name to the movie also.
The maid of the house poses for Vermeer for the painting which causes problems with the wife :)
This is the movie that made lovely Scarlett Johansonn well-known[at least for me :)], on the left is the original paiting and Scartlet,note the great similarity.
Anyway if you have not seen it :Watch it!
Here is the IMDB link and here is a link on Vermeer.
