The life story of Dutch painter Han van Meegeren, from his beginnings as a rebellious young artist in 1920s Amsterdam to his rise to infamy as one of the most ingenious art forgers of all time.
A 1920s period piece with a postmodernist sensibility, Rudolf van den Berg’s painstakingly detailed drama unveils the glamor and foibles of fine arts as commerce. Musing on the blurred line between authenticity and fakery, the non-linear true story also casts doubt on the stability of time itself.
