A great story well told

I actually went to this movie by accident, getting my dates mixed up. A seemingly small story about forgery in the art world (what else is new) but one that focuses on a renowned indigenous artist who emerged from the morass of a difficult early life to produce some of the finest art of its kind, but then fell back and was seemingly taken advantage of by several small but unscrupulous characters. A great story by itself, but the emergence half way through of another person's story made this a riveting documentary. I can't recommend this enough, and was glad I couldn't read the rep theatre schedule properly.

Better than the Court of Appeal

The authenticity of Norval Morrisseau paintings represents one of the sad chapters in the exploitation of Canadian aboriginals. The documentary exposes the methods the forgery ring employed to saturate the market. The film is balanced given the trial judge' finding that forged paintings existed. I particularly appreciated the evidence of the aboriginal witnesses in Thunder Bay.

The last word(s) will come from the Ontario Court of Appeal so the film should be revised at some point.

"There Are No Fakes" is shocking and so un-Canadian.

"There Are No Fakes" is a shocking and revealing film that will have you pinned to your seat for two hours. . In this documentary, a painting, apparently the work of an iconic Native artist, leads a musician who buys it into the tragic, brutal world of an art forgery ring in Canada. . From it's opening moments, "There Are No Fakes" dives into an underground world of art forgery that is filled with twists and turns. Director Jamie Kastner's approach to his documentary is like a heist-like thriller, which enthrals you throughout. A superb and fascinating look at the biggest Canadian art fraud in history. . Be sure to see this film. . Follow @snobreviews for more reviews!
