The Art Dealer (L’Antiquaire) by Francois Margolin (France, 2014, 95 min.). A stylish Parisian thriller set in the murky world of Nazi-looted art. A young journalist, Esther Stegmann (Anna Sigalevitch, The Piano Teacher), finds herself caught up in a web of betrayal and complicity as she investigates stolen family paintings, and uncovers a story that has been carefully buried for decades by those closest to her. French director François Margolin (The Flight of the Red Balloon) lends the lightest of touches to this dark tale, with sumptuous and beautifully shot backdrops of Paris and ravishing music to match. Also starring Michel Bouquet (Renoir) and Louis-Do de Lencquesaing. In French with English subtitles.
