Storyline

Set in present day London and 1911 Italy, screenwriter Paul Gerstenberger's Fakers is a funny, sharp and fast moving tale of blackmail and forgery set in the upper echelons of the international art society. An offbeat crime caper in the tradition of The Thomas Crown Affair and The Italian Job, Fakers weaves and twists it way to a bombshell denouement that will disarm even the most hardnosed mystery enthusiast. Written by Phil Symes

Gangster chic - witty but unmemorable
7 November 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Gangster Chic in which a conman who owes £50,000 finds a rare sketch from an old Italian artist and makes copies to raise enough cash to pay his debt. The treatment is entertaining, funny without destroying the tension, but lacks the depth or breadth to justify the price of admission in the face of worthier movies.

In retrospect, the film looks small budget although struggling along well enough. Competent without any artistic genius sort of thing.

Witty and charming, Fakers is a pleasant enough gangster movie that keeps most of the violence off-screen, but has too little substance to be memorable.
