For some reason, Claire always refuses to be seen in person.

Stealing hundreds of paintings from an art expert and dealer is an extremely foolish idea. The paintings were legally purchased. They are in every arts catalogue as sold by a respectable auction house. Selling them would be impossible. The whole scheme seems like a waste of time.
Actually, this is not correct: Billy is the one who bought the paintings, and he is part of the crew. Also, all paintings had been sold as forgeries. So really not that much risk here. See more »
I wouldn't be so sure if I were you. Human emotions are like works of art. They can be forged. They seem just like the original, but they are a forgery.
Everything can be faked, Virgil. Joy, pain, hate... illness, recovery. Even love.

I watched 12 most promising movies at recent Berlinale, and this was ultimately the best one. The movie is breathtaking and captures you from the first seconds. Mr. Rush acting is superb, as are the art direction, cinematography, score and of course, the plot. Film is full of beauty, emotion and humor. It feels like a united whole from beginning to the end and leaves a great impression. I was also surprised later, when I found out that it was shot digitally with Arri Alexa Studio - I was sure it was shot on film. This really is a camera which will finally kill film, although I love film so much. Ironically, film may remain the medium of choice for low budget productions, who can not afford renting this Arri beast.
