Description

A film festival favorite, Finnish director Klaus Haro (The Fencer, 2016, Letters to Father Jacob, 2010) reunites with his brilliant Father Jacob actor Heikki Nousiainen for One Last Deal, the story of an aging, soon-to-retire, art dealer who wants to go out on top, despite his failing business. And when he sees a beautiful painting up for auction that seems to be misidentified, he smells his chance.

All his life, 72-year-old widower Olavi has put business interests before family, resulting in an estranged adult daughter and a teen grandson he barely knows. He's a dinosaur of the art world, keeping his records on file cards and contacting his clients by phone. He doesn't know how to use mobile phones or the internet until grandson Otto arrives in fulfillment of a school assignment. Despite some initial friction, the pair start to get along, especially after Olavi enlists Otto in his quest to authenticate the painting.
