In the name of art
9 April 2013
Art is business as every collector will tell you. In contemporary London, an old man in dire straits tries to salvage his last belonging (a Mondrian painting, the world famous Boogie-Woogie), from the predatory instincts of his wife who hopes to get a huge price for it thanks to an unscrupulous gallerist. No deep feelings here, only a charming, witty and fast-paced comedy beautifully served by a host of skilled actors and actresses who seem to enjoy the show.
I would recommend this film to anyone who ever fell in love with Heather Graham's incredibly radiant smile or with Amanda Seyfried's
subversive good looks and dead-pan humor. Stellan Skarsgard seems as well to revel in this kind of light-hearted cynicism. Comedy is what we need in those troubled times. Come to think of it: how many smiling, charming and optimistic characters did you meeet lately in your neighbourhood ?
