Storyline

Mike McKenzie is a bored,self-made millionaire who is cheered to learn that art auctioneer Laura Stanton,the old flame he allowed to escape him,is back in Edinburgh. Mike is disdainful of private art collectors and is interested when art expert Professor Gissing suggests that they,along with banker Allan Cruikshank,devise a plan to swap priceless paintings from the national gallery and owned by a banking conglomerate for clever forgeries. The forgeries will be left behind,giving the impression that the thieves abandoned their haul when they fled. For a single day the gallery is open to the public under the Doors Open scheme and the trio plan to use this to their advantage. Mike brings on board another old friend,small time crook Charlie Calloway,but Charlie is in debt to a gang boss known as the Geordie and wants a painting to buy him off. The gang use a fake fire drill to pull off the theft and,despite getting locked in the gallery,are successful. Laura returns to Mike,who confesses ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Badly paced, and almost colonial
29 December 2012 | by nephihahaSee all my reviews

At least half of this badly paced and poorly written crime caper could have been cut. Most of the first hour drags... the "heist" is mildly entertaining, but doesn't make up for the rest.

All the educated, middle class people, apart from Douglas Henshall's character are English, or have English accents. And all the schemies/working class people have Glaswegian ones. (Apart from some Geordie criminals!) Edinburgh is not like that, and it seems all too reminiscent of the Alasdair Gray row. Is Scotland colonised? Well, watching this, you'd well think so. Apparently almost all Scots live in council house schemes, are football obsessed and don't get involved in the art world. The hegemony implicit in this is outrageous!
