Self-fixated and cantankerous artist Renzo and sly art dealer Arturo have known and worked with each other for a very long time. From Renzo's brilliance days in the 1980s to the present, where he's months behind on the lease of his bedraggled home, littered with bric-a-brac, pets and the vast, beautiful canvases he continues creating. Just as their relationship seems to be nearing an end, an accident brings them closer together again, triggering a string of forgeries, friendships and fatalities that will culminate in a twist no one could anticipate.
Veteran performers Francella and Brandoni are at their best in Argentinian Duprat’s fifth film which screened to a warm reception at Venice Film Festival with its delightful portrayal of the uglier side of the art business.
