Art dealer Olavi has put his career above all else and, at age 72, has little more to show for it than a lonely, dusty shop, mounting debt, and constant grouchiness. Olavi’s hope to retire on a high note is restored when, in an auction lineup, he finds an old unauthenticated painting that he believes is worth much more than its starting price. As he tries to confirm his suspicion, Olavi’s estranged daughter Lea asks him to help with his 15-year-old grandson, Otto. The unlikely pair bond over their mission to authenticate the painting, and Otto’s youthful energy and knowledge prove to be crucial in helping Olavi - professionally and emotionally. The second feature from Golden Globe-nominated writer and director duo Anna Heinämaa and Klaus Härö, One Last Deal is a charming and bittersweet tale of redemption and reconciliation.
Klaus Härö, 2018 | 95 minutes
