The first trailer has been unveiled for The Last Vermeer.
Based on the book The Man Who Made Vermeers by Jonathan Lopez, the upcoming period drama movie brings to life some interesting real events.
The Last Vermeer tells the true story of a painting discovered by a soldier in the aftermath of World War II while going through the artifacts left by the Nazis.
Watch the trailer:
The official synopsis reads: “Joseph Piller (Claes Bang), a soldier and member of the Dutch resistance, now investigates stolen art. Along with his brilliant assistant (Vicky Krieps), he looks into the astonishing accusation that the flamboyant Dutch painter Han van Meegeren (Guy Pearce) sold a Vermeer to the Nazis.
“Despite mounting evidence, Piller becomes increasingly convinced of his innocence and finds himself in the unlikely position of fighting to save the life of the colorful man with a mysterious past.”
The Last Vermeer was originally set for release in select US cinemas from 22nd May, but we’d expect this release to be pushed back due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.
Jonathan Lopez’s book The Man Who Made Vermeers is available on Amazon.
