Good story, well directed, a very nice thriller
1 March 2020 | by johnpierrepatrickSee all my reviews

Set in the art, and to be accurate literature, world, we first follow a failed writer that happened to lay hands on a masterpiece. Jumping at the chance, he managed to make his life a perfect dream. There the movie really begins, with the pressure of a second book when he has been labelled a genius. Soon joined by pressures from his agent, bank, love rival and finally blackmail. How will he resist all this? What is he ready to do or to give up?
