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.

The whole very large audience was laughing frequently.
4 April 2004 | by (Milwaukee, WI, USA) – See all my reviews

With multiple twists and a skewed comedic narrative, this art forgery crime caper keeps itself interesting even though we have seen the genre. The crime boss may steal the show, but a lot of work goes into setting everything up. The main characters have their own quirks and history which makes them more believable as movie characters although not with enough individual development to make us really sympathize with them. The third level characters continue the pattern of individual variation which makes for some more comedy and uncertainty as to the next event. The whole very large audience of over one thousand people was laughing loudly and frequently. Definitely worth checking out if you get the chance.
