“Absorbing…the passionate exchange between the viewer and the artist. Or rather, between the owner and the artist. Includes aristos and dealers, billionaires and restorers, experts and museum directors, all united by their obsession with Rembrandt, and their unquenchable desire to own one. An eloquent piece of filmmaking. Rembrandt’s ability to bring to life two ordinary burghers has the power to enthrall whole countries. This is a fascinating film (that) conveys the furious intensity Rembrandt inspires, at the nexus of passion, power and money.” – Jan Dalley, Financial Times (UK)
“The super-rich collectors and dealers in Oeke Hoogendijk’s amusing documentary come right out of Rembrandt paintings themselves. Bracing… about high-stakes shenanigans in the art market.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian (UK)
“Heart-in-the-mouth viewing.” – The Telegraph (UK)
“A compelling whodunnit.” – The Times (UK)
