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.

A very enjoyable fun film. Much like the old Ealing comedies.
15 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Unlike some people who have commented on this film, I have actually seen it and therefore feel more qualified to add my own comments. Considering the age of the director, I think this is an excellent effort. The story is fast moving and amusing. There is plenty of action without unnecessary violence or profanity. There is a definite similarity to the old and highly successful Ealing comedies. The film was made on a limited budget as are many films of this genre but this certainly does not have any adverse affect on the enjoyment of the film. Please let us have more positive comments on our British made films from the younger generations, our film industry needs as much support as it can get.
