Daniel (Gabriel Mann) is a struggling artist. His girlfriend (Jill Flint) thinks he is great, but the art community has left him behind. His critics claim his original works copy the styles of other artist. His despair is artificially heightened by a much too loud violin soundtrack. However, in the real criminal world, being able to reproduce the brush strokes of famous artists has a certain amount of commericial value.

His girlfriend is not enthusiastic about the whole forgery thing. The movie attempts to make us pity poor poor Daniel with a pathetic soundtrack as he produces fakes and sells for healthy profit. Seriously? They go out of their way to try to make us feel sorry for a guy who is going to forge paintings because he lacks the love and support of his girlfriend (also in the art business). Spielberg cleverly made me all teary eyed when Darth Vader died, but an arrogant artist who we don't like anyway? Who is Friedle trying to kid? Super rich snobbish art collectors getting ripped off by fake paintings. Not even with violin music could this break my heart. Gabriel Mann does some first person narration on the noble history of art forgery. Where is the director supposed to be going with this?

In a subplot Tay Murphy (David Thornton) who wears his hair like Judd Nelson in "The Breakfast Club" is a dishonest art gallery owner and gambler way down on his luck. Like the cavalry, these Irish bad guys rescue the film from being a lame indie flop.

Like most artists, Daniel's biggest flaw is his ego. He has a small almost secret cross star that he inserts into all of his paintings. Good acting by the support cast. In the beginning the film seems like it is an Indy docudrama taken from a 60 minutes episode.

The film picks up when the jazz starts to play.

Great flick...can't beat a film with Robert Loggia..and he was intense. The plot was well crafted and the cast was great. I enjoyed it and thought the research into what art forgery really is or can be is scary....

I enjoyed this film. I bought it because I personally know one of the actors (small part but effective!!) I was pleasantly surprised that It also starred one of my "Revenge" series actors. I rarely go to the movies but my friends who do go also liked this movie.
