One Last Deal

An elderly art dealer has one last shot at pulling in some proper pension money in this drama from veteran Finnish director, Klaus Härö.

"An aging art dealer — left behind by the corporatisation of his industry and estranged from his family — hopes an undervalued icon will turn his fortunes around ... Few of Härö’s creations are as divided as Olavi (Heikki Nousiainen), a work-obsessed dealer left behind by an industry favouring larger corporate conglomerates. Getting the icon will require a lot of research and a little help, which he unexpectedly receives from his grandson, Otto. As Olavi schools the kid in how to navigate a cutthroat industry and research things you just can’t find via Google, he reconnects with his daughter, Lea, and rediscovers the family he’s missed. The big question, however, is whether he’ll sacrifice everything for that one last score." (Toronto International Film Festival)

Director and scenarist execute their tale with enough restraint - reflective of the lead character's stunted emotional range - to eke out poignancy from what's at core a somewhat predictable narrative arc.

In its own modest way, it is an enthralling and warm-hearted tale of families, loss and the most bitter-sweet of redemptions. Go see it.

An old-fashioned heartwarmer that travels familiar territory with polished ease.

This warm-hearted charmer presses some obvious emotional buttons, but with enough deadpan humour and self-aware attitude to avoid schmaltzy overload.
