It's Different, But Like The Fake Painting You Know It Could Be Better
8 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although sometimes way too slow-moving and not as involving as it should have been, this film was almost a "keeper" in my collection.

The story was different, and I liked it, about an artist producing a fake Rembrandt. Jason Patric, an interesting and underrated actor, played the role on the con 'artist,' so to speak. Appealing-looking Irene Jacob, played the female lead. She was likable, unlike Patric's character.

There are some interesting moments in this film, particularly for those who love art. There also are a few nice shots of Jacob that should please most male viewers. Overall, nothing that super but decent and worth a rental. It's different, I'll say that.....but don't expect a lot.
