Critics Consensus

Handsome set pieces and exceptional performances help make The Miniaturist engaging enough, even if its version of events doesn't quite measure up to its mysterious source material.

Critic Reviews for The Miniaturist Miniseries

"The Miniaturist" may feel raw and green, sometimes naively so, but in its awkward, otherworldly way champions hope and change, and that's rarely a waste of time.

The three-part period piece has some weaknesses in the final chapter, but it is nonetheless an intriguing story led by a trio of stellar performances. Oh, and it's completely gorgeous.

The Miniaturist will keep you hooked, and guessing, piece by beautifully handcrafted piece.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

But just like the dollhouse at its center, The Miniaturist is better at housing facsimiles rather than characters that feel real.

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

It failed to convince, not just as a mystery but also generally. I kept thinking: that would not happen.

Jul 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Spooky silly. Still, Garai has never been better, playing Marin as a Dutch Mrs Danvers, the barely lit prison of a house a canalside Manderley.

Feb 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It tells, in a effective way, a story that fascinates in the molds of a good series. [Full Review in Spanish]

Still, the mystery is thrilling, and the show is gorgeous to look at, and Taylor-Joy is a fantastic actress who keeps the show humming along, even when her character doesn't quite make sense for her surroundings.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's absolutely glorious to look at in its fully formed universe of old Amsterdam; it's wicked and wild but in the turmoil, she finds out who she is, her previously unknown abilities and how adversity can cause one's heart to grow and love.

Oct 2, 2018 | Full Review…

"Masterpiece"... is back with a gorgeous looking three-part series about a young woman married to a 17th century Amsterdam merchant, based on Jessie Burton's novel and lit like a Vermeer painting.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The Miniaturist is always lovely to look at and the cast are uniformly good, despite too often having to deliver lines of slightly portentous, viewer-nudging dialogue.

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

It was shot and framed beautifully throughout, all blood-black walls and rustling silks, and borrowing of Vermeer's light, and just spooksome enough for this time of year.
