In the world of high-end art auctions and antiques, Virgil Oldman is an elderly and esteemed but eccentric genius art-expert, known and appreciated by the world. Oldman is hired by a solitary young heiress, Claire Ibbetson, to auction off the large collection of art and antiques left to her by her parents. For some reason, Claire always refuses to be seen in person. Robert aids Oldman in restoring and reassembling some odd mechanical parts he finds amongst Claire's belongings, while also giving him advice on how to befriend her and deal with his feelings towards her. Also a friend of Oldman, Billy Whistler helps him to acquire a secret private collection of master paintings.Written by
In the pub across from the villa there hangs a poster on the wall which features a design promoting Alexander. Alexander was a magician who performed in the early 20th century and enjoyed great success in his presentations within the field of mentalism (e.g. mind reading, telepathy and the like). Alexander was often promoted as "The Man Who Knows", due to his ability to answer questions put to him by the audience under seemingly impossible circumstances. This, of course, parallels the function of the automaton which is featured in the film. See more »
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.

Great movies have the power to make you think and this movie had me thinking for so long I couldn't sleep on the night I saw it. It is a tremendous film with a deeply unsettling message and even now, 24 hours after seeing it I am haunted by the end.
It's a fairy story and nightmare rolled into one. It's not what happens that's important it's how it happens. the story is great but the plot is even better.
Forget the bad reviews and make up your own mind. If you subscribe to the notion that Life imitates Art or Art imitates Life go see it. You won't be disappointed.
