The Handmaid‘s Tale (Der Report der Magd)

Of necessity, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is an immersive viewing experience, where mood is painted stroke by stroke on the screen. Director Reed Morano went to the Dutch master Vermeer for inspiration, and chances are good-to-excellent your own favorite Vermeer is reflected here, especially if it’s “Woman with a Water Jug” or “The Milkmaid.”

That classic Vermeer face – of a woman caught midway between reflection and surprise – is Moss’s face. Natural gray light filters through windows, muting those all-important colors of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Reds are rusted, greens and blues are lustrous but faded. The only sharply defined color is black.“
