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.

Cute as hell
21 December 2009 | by (Syracuse, NY) – See all my reviews

Not a classic, but lots of fun. Matthew Rhys is rather adorable as a man who owes money to a mobster (this situation is completely unexplained, but the movie clearly doesn't depend on an explanation), and comes up with a scheme to forge a famous drawing and sell it to multiple galleries in order to raise the money. Absurd, of course, but that's virtually required when all the usual descriptors apply - romp, caper, etc. Yes, there are ridiculous holes in the plot, and yes, the entire enterprise depends on most characters being completely clueless, but none of this detracts from the viewer's enjoyment. I've spent 2 hours of my life in much worse ways than watching this little charmer.
