Storyline

Norman Oppenheimer is the President of New York based Oppenheimer Strategies. His word-of-mouth business is consulting work largely in American-Israeli business and politics, that focus due to being Jewish. Most of that work is as a fixer: doing work that others don't want to do and with which they don't want to be officially associated. In reality, Norman is a shyster, and not a very good one at that. His office is comprised of his cell phone and whatever is stuffed in his satchel which is usually slung over his shoulder as he wanders the streets. What he promises is making connections, setting up a meeting between his guy and the other guy. Generally, "his guy" is non-existent, he dropping names of people he usually doesn't know to make connections. A usual tactic he uses is to say that his deceased wife was personally connected to so-and-so, such as being a babysitter, those stories always untrue. All he needs is for one of the people that he approaches to believe a story to build ... Written by Huggo

Good Movie
19 November 2017 | by chilipeppers-17879See all my reviews

I liked the movie. I know it's fiction, but I always make an analysis as if it were true.

1. The guy who was stalking Norman, towards the end of the movie, and was a con artist, like Norman.....My question is....WHAT WAS THIS GUY TRYING TO CON FROM NORMAN?

2. The dinner at Arthur Taud's house. Norman got kicked out because Micha did't show up. When all the names of the guests were shown, they showed Mica's name,having a dinner seat, but not Norman's. And Mica's name was there because of Norman's con game. Norman was kicked out of the house because Mica wasn't there. So my question is....SUPPOSE MICHA HAD COME TO THE DINNER...WOULD NORMAN HAVE STILL BEEN KICKED OUT? AND IF NOT, WHERE WAS HE GOING TO SIT?
