TRUST NO ONE
95 minutes, Color
Olavi (Heikki Nousiainen) has spent his life in the rarefied world of art dealers, auction houses, and fine-art galleries. The many small paintings, prints, and objets d'art that clutter his cramped gallery tell the story of a man who is more interested in quiet intellectual pursuits than messy human interactions. It is the latter situation that arises when Olavi's estranged grandson, Otto (Amos Brotherus), arrives looking for a job. Again, Olavi can't be bothered, as he has spotted what he thinks is a rare and valuable Renaissance portrait up for auction and is desperate to grab it. Pushed to achieve recognition and reward that has always eluded him, Olavi finds that the youngster's Google skills come in handy, and the pair set off on a mission. The trip raises suspicions with Otto's mother (Pirjo Lonka), who remains angry at her father's treatment of his family. —Dave Nuttycombe
