One Last Deal
2018 | Drama | Finland |
95 mins | Colour | Finnish & Swedish
An elderly art dealer Olavi, is about to retire. A man who has always put business and art before everything – even his family – cannot imagine life without work. At an auction, an old painting catches his attention. Olavi suspects it is worth much more than its starting price, which is low because its authenticity hasn’t been confirmed. Olavi’s instincts kick in. He decides to make one last deal in order to earn some proper pension money. To fulfil his dream, the old dealer must face both the auction house and his own past mistakes. Heikki Nousiainen gives a terrific performance as Olavi in a fascinating film which seems to suggest that sometimes the most valuable bargains we strike in life are more emotional than financial. A little gem.
