A wealthy retiree's pursuit of aesthetic perfection leads him to hire a private investigator's earnest young intern to follow an amateur model after he discovers her face in local copy of a Rossetti painting. The man and boy quickly bond and, with the help of a would-be pickup artist, quietly interject themselves into the life of the girl as she enters university, in a Montreal awash with student protests.

Plot more interesting than movie
1 July 2014 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

The storyline is what captured my interest to watch this movie. Set in Montreal during the Occupy movements by students in 2012, a young man is tasked with discovering the identity of a young girl in a painting. This painting has infatuated an elderly wealthy man and he see's her as the perfection of beauty.

The problem with this flick is its low budget and bad actors. Believe me the producers squeezed everything they could out of the few dollars they had. Some scenes are slow and labored if not just plain dull. Plus not enough was done with the Occupy protesters as a counter story in the background.

But the message is very clear - the wealthy are consumed with their own thoughts and wants and to hell with the needs of the society around them. The students have the idealism of an improved world while the wealthy seek it in their own personal gratification.
