La Migliore Offerta (The Best Offer)

La Migliore Offerta (The Best Offer)

On August 04, 2018


A fine portrait of art and obsession.

Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush) is a misogynist auctioneer and art collector who puts his friend Billy (Donald Sutherland) in charge of purchasing works of art undisturbed. One day he receives a call from Claire (Sylvia Hoeks), heiress to a sprawling villa full of paintings and antiques. She convinces him to evaluate her late parents’ property. From here begins a story full of passion and intrigue.

The Best Offer, the new English-language mystery/drama from veteran Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso), is baroque, unapologetically odd, and gorgeous to look at. Shot on locations in Italy, Venice and Prague, in grand houses and villas, the film’s visual style is like Merchant Ivory crossed with a Christie’s catalogue; it’s all chocolate-y browns and the odd redeeming gold and silvery highlight.
