Here’s my review of The Painted Veil for MovieRob’s August Genre Grandeur of revenge movies. This stately period piece may not be your typical revenge story, but it’s in there, along with some unique romantic themes.


For this month’s first review for Genre Grandeur – Revenge Movies, here’s a review of The Painted Veil (2006) by SG of Rhyme and Reason

Thanks again to Gavin of Mini Media Reviews for choosing this month’s genre.

Next month’s Genre has been chosen by Robb of Red Bezzle and it is RemadeMovies.

Love or hate, compare and contrast, and dare to say they’re better. It could be a relocated remake a la The Magnificent Seven, an Animation to Live Action remake similar to The Jungle Book or straight forward reimagining such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. 

Please get me your submissions by the 25th of September by sending them to

Try to think out of the box! Great choice Robb!

Let’s see what SG thought of this movie:


The Painted Veil (2006)

Blinded by bitterness,

Swallowed by spite,

Ruined by rancor,

I thought revenge right.
