A who-done-it about misappropriation of Jewish-owned art treasures during the period leading-up to World War II. A third-generation descendant overcomes seemingly insurmountable obstacles and deception to uncover betrayals and lies to solve the case.Written by
"The Art Dealer" from 2015 is a somewhat confusing film about the search for paintings stolen from Jews by the Nazis.
This is not a particularly well-made film, and I had a problem with one character who appears in old movies and shows up in the present. Apparently it's the same person (it was definitely the same actor).
The star is Anna Sigalevitch, who is a good actress and deserved better. She has to carry the whole film.
This is certainly an interesting subject, but it's been covered better in "Monuments Men," "Woman in Gold," and even an excellent episode of "Law and Order" starring Karen Allen called "Survivor."
