The Burnt Orange Heresy

98 mins
6.8 / 10 (166)


Charismatic art critic James has fallen from grace, with his only glimmer of hope being a new-found love interest, the enigmatic American, Berenice. An opportunity strikes when an art dealer asks him to steal a painting from a legendary reclusive artist, but James’ greed soon gets the better of him.

MUBI's take

Giuseppe Capotondi’s slinky Mephistophelian thriller is firmly rooted in the glamorous yet shadowy underbelly of the art world. Bathed in the aura of acting royalty Donald Sutherland and a cameo from Rolling Stone Mick Jagger, Burnt Orange Heresy questions what the true value of art really is.
