While catching the latest releases on Virtual Cinema is great option, there is nothing like experiencing a movie on the big screen (at a mask & socially-distance enforcing cinema). Cinestudio presents a just-released mystery thriller, shot on location in Italy and set in the rarified, if amoral, upper strata of the art world. Danish actor Claes Bang (The Square) stars as a slippery art critic, who invites his brand new flame (The Night Manager’s Elizabeth Debicki) on a trip to Lake Como, to meet an art collector played by the never less than charismatic Mick Jagger. Besides the gorgeous views, it’s art they are after – in particular, a rare painting by an enigmatic artist played by Donald Sutherland.
“A spiky romance filled with art history and the trappings of a sleekly elegant neo-noir.” – Boyd van Hoei, Venice Film Festival 2019.
