My Masterpiece

Following on from his 2016 Goya Award-winning The Distinguished Citizen, director Gastón Duprat delivers this crowd-pleasing comedy-thriller that follows the complex relationship of a cranky painter and a crafty gallery owner in Buenos Aires.

Self-fixated artist Renzo (Luis Brandoni) and sly art dealer Arturo (Guillermo Francella, The Clan SFF15, The Secret in Their Eyes 2009) have worked with each other for a very long time. From Renzo's best days in the 1980s to the present, where he's behind on the lease of his bedraggled home, littered with the vast, beautiful canvases he continues creating. An accident brings them closer together again, triggering a string of forgeries, friendships and fatalities that will culminate in a twist no one could anticipate.

Expert veteran performers Francella and Brandoni are at their best in Argentinian Duprat’s fifth film which screened to a warm reception out of competition at last year’s Venice Film Festival with its delightful portrayal of the uglier side of the art business.
