A Master of Possession. A Crime of Obsession
Virgil Oldman is a world renowned antiques expert and auctioneer. An eccentric genius, he leads a solitary life, going to extreme lengths to keep his distance from the messiness of human relationships. When appointed by the beautiful but emotionally damaged Claire to oversee the valuation and sale of her family’s priceless art collection, Virgil allows himself to form an attachment to her – and soon he is engulfed by a passion which will rock his bland existence to the core.

I was recommended this film by my Japanese friend. The plot is set in somewhere in Europe( probably in the UK ) , but it is apparently filmed in Trieste or in Vienna. The directer is Italian and that may be why it include plenty of tastes of art. This is a story of an auctioneer who is crazy about art and afraid of women. One day, he was asked by a woman to create a catalogue of antique furniture which she was inherited by her parents. A problem is that she suffers from agoraphobia and she is unwilling to meet him. The only manner to talk to her is phoning. Then, he starts being interested in her gradually... You see an unexpected end and it really amazed me. Also you can see scenery of Prague at the end. It reminds me of a beautiful memory when I visited there.
