Movie Info

An elderly art dealer Olavi (72) is about to retire. A man who has always put business and art before everything--even his family--cannot imagine life without work. At an auction, an old painting catches his attention. Olavi suspects it is worth much more than its starting price, which is low because its authenticity hasn't been confirmed. Olavi's instincts kick in. He decides to make one last deal in order to earn some proper pension money. At the same time, Olavi's daughter Lea (42)--whom he hasn't seen for years--asks him to help her with his teenage grandson Otto (15). 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 fulfill his dream, the old dealer must face both the auction house and his own past mistakes.

Critic Reviews for One Last Deal

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

This warm-hearted charmer presses some obvious emotional buttons, but with enough deadpan humor and self-aware attitude to avoid schmaltzy overload.

His eventual redemption in the eyes of his family (and God?) is predictable. In other words...meh.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

An old-fashioned heartwarmer that travels familiar territory with polished ease.

September 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Surprisingly sentimental for a Finnish movie, One Last Deal is at its most gratifying when it's less "Death of a Salesman", more Roger Dodger.

September 9, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This is a gentle film about final chances, paired with a lilting and haunting lullaby of a score, that often feels more like a play than a movie.

September 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Increasingly, the film takes on a lighter, rosy glow as Olavi's redemption pulls up in the rear, tending to enhance the artificiality of its resolution.
