  • One Last Deal

  • Original Title:
  • Tuntematon mestari
  • Screening Time:
  • Year:
  • 2018

  • 72-year-old art dealer Olavi sees an old painting at an auction and suspects that it’s much more valuable than its starting price. At the same time, Olavi’s daughter Lea – whom he hasn’t seen for years – asks him to help her with his teenage grandson Otto. Together with Otto, Olavi starts to investigate the background of the painting. They find out that the painting is called Christ and was painted by Ilya Repin. Olavi manages to buy the painting, but when the auction house realizes that there has been a mistake with the original pricing, they turn against him. To fulfil his dream, the old dealer must face both the auction house and his own past mistakes.

    Director’s Statement: One Last Deal tells the tale of an elderly art dealer searching for the ultimate piece of art in order to prove himself. But is it really worthwhile? Risking everything by going out there one more time to challenge destiny? As a director I’m always looking for stories that I can connect to. We all hope for a second chance in life, but what if we would actually get it? Would we be able to change things?
