Set in Italy but with an all English speaking cast and script, this is what a modern day Aspern Papers would be like if it was dramatised by Alfred Hitchcock. Everything is stylish and beautifully shot. The dialogue is rich.
Geoffrey Rush plays Virgil a pre-eminent art dealer and auctioneer who, it is immediately apparent, often uses a plant at auction to buy up art he has misrepresented the value and origins of, to build his own private collection hidden in a vault behind his expensive closet. He is somewhere on the spectrum between fastidious and OCD (or CDO if you can't bear your acronyms being out of strict alpha-numeric order). He has few friends - Billy the plant (Donald Sutherland) and Robert (Jim Sturgess) who owns a repair/restoration shop.
One day Virgil receives a phone call from a woman called Claire, who wants the contents of her late parents' villa in he middle of the city, appraised. At first she seems illusive, never keeping appointments and making implausible excuses for not meeting Virgil personally to discuss terms. Then Virgil discovers she is actually reclusive, living in a closed off part of the villa, not having been outside in years.
Virgil is increasingly drawn to Claire, her voice and glimpses of her. However, he is not above stealing small items from the house, which are clockwork pieces that his friend Robert identifies as parts of an automaton designed by someone Virgil studied for his Masters Degree. As Virgil is drawn in he leaves his ivory tower, showing a warmer and friendlier side to Billy and Jim, asking for relationship advice from the latter.
I was drawn in too by the intrigue, excellent story telling and great acting. It was a treat all round.

A refreshingly different movie. Enough mystery and emotion to draw you right in sweetly - and then?!!!! Brilliant.

you are left in the dark about the ending and feel the same way as the main character. An intelligent film with an intriguing story.
It is a shame that this was renamed "Deception" as the clue to the story is in the title. Originally this was "The Final Offer" a reference to long term relationships, paintings and auctions and gave no real clue to where the story was going or how it would conclude.

I found this film mesmerising. The colouring, the sets, all and Geoffrey Rush totally brilliant! The last ten minutes, so unexpected. Not often I get so absorbed in any film, but this one was it! Be warned though, it is sad in parts, and the ending displays a terrible side to human nature. Wonderful film, thoroughly recommended.
