On October 6, see the hit new Finnish art mystery and redemption thriller One Last Deal (Finland, 2019; dir. Klaus Härö) in New Nordic Cinema at Scandinavia House!
Elderly art dealer Olavi (Heikki Nousiainenis) has always put business and art before everything – even his family – and on the brink of retirement, cannot imagine life without work. When an old painting at auction catches his attention, Olavi suspects that it’s worth much more than starting price, and decides to make one last deal in order to earn some proper pension money. With his teenage grandson Otto — the son of his long-estranged daughter Lea — he begins an investigation into the history of the painting, securing it at a much lower price than its true value. But when the auction house realizes the error, he must face both them and his own past mistakes to leave the art scene as a winner. (95 min. In Finnish and Swedish with English subtitles)
