Storyline

In March of 1990, two thieves dressed as Boston police officers gained entrance to the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum in Boston Massachusetts and successfully executed the largest art heist in modern history. Among the thirteen priceless works stolen was Vermeer's "The Concert" one of only 35 of the masters surviving works. Not a single one of the works has been recovered. STOLEN is a full exploration of the Gardner theft, and the fascinating, disparate characters involved: from the 19th century Grand dame Isabella Gardner to a private detective obsessed with finding the art to a terrorist organization with a penchant for stealing Vermeers.

Amazing, intriguing -- it made me want to find the Vermeer!
7 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved Stolen! As someone who tends to shy away from documentaries, Stolen kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! The Producer and Director did a beautiful job interpreting their very lengthy and detailed investigation on film -- I really got it and I wanted to find the thief myself. It makes you appreciate fine art and the emotions that humans attach to its presence. Stolen plays like a feature, where the suspects and the informants are all characters -- with the sweetness and brilliance of Harold Smith, to the hilariousness of the suspects from abroad -- Stolen is a true "masterpiece". It's no wonder it's been successful all over the country. It engages viewers who are not from the Boston area and deserves all the accolades and kudos it receives. I say, "Well done!".
