TV Mini-Series | | Drama, Mystery
A young woman moves to 17th century Amsterdam and hires a mysterious local miniaturist to furnish the dollhouse she received from her merchant husband as present, but the lifelike miniatures somehow start eerily foreshadowing her fate.
Several scenes that took place in Amsterdam, like the Canals and the church, were actually shot in the Dutch city of Leiden. Amsterdam was considered to be too modern, whereas in Leiden the buildings were mostly preserved in original state.
