Absolute garbage!
Verified purchase
The dialog and writing were so terribly stupid that I should have turned it off much sooner than I did, but I was somewhat intrigued by the world of auctions and rare items so I continued watching out of morbid curiosity. Even then I could only make it halfway through before I started to throw up in my own mouth. She's afraid of everything, but somehow not of sucking on her own dirty big toe after walking barefoot around a dirty house? The line "you can't treat her like a patient, you have to treat her like a woman" was the last straw. I couldn't go on after that. I'm truly astonished that this wasn't a Kevin Costner movie written by a woman! That's how cliche dumbly romantic it was.

Unique and compelling
Verified purchase
The Best Offer is a very unique and compelling film. Geoffrey Rush plays an unscrupulous yet famous art auctioneer in London who suddenly gets a call from a mysterious woman played by Sylvia Hoeks who refuses to be seen by anyone. He goes from being completely frustrated to being obsessed by her. It’s very unconventional and that provides the draw. Eventually you want to see her just as much as Rush. After that great build up there’s a huge twist at the end. I wasn’t so sure about it at first because it seemed so unbelievable and outrageous but then as it sunk in I came to appreciate it because it was actually based upon Rush’s character. Kudos to the filmmakers for putting this out.

It’s totally unbelievable… but that doesn’t matter.
Verified purchase
It’s well done, has a good cast and the acting is great and that’s about all I can say without spoilers. The plot is totally unbelievable but it’s so well done it doesn’t matter because the movie pulls you in and you just overlook the glaring errors of what’s being done because what’s being done is so captivating so don’t challenge what comes next. There’s enough twists to this that it almost begs a sequel.

BUFFOONERY - Disappointment
Verified purchase
Silly Geriatric attempting to recapture his youth! - ensnared by the world's oldest profession! (sex) -- ONE (1) STAR is for a ridiculous script- Decent Acting - GEOFFREY RUSH gave a SUPERB performance -- One would think with AGE comes WISDOM --Clearly, not always ...... Never have I come across an aged person as GULLIBLE & FOOLISH as the Main Protagonist in this film....... What drew me in, mostly, was...... The Auctioneer, Virgil Oldman, who comes off as being rather intelligent --an intellectual even....... *ENDING was a let down. **FINAL NOTE: Viewing a decrepit man's gnarled fingers pawing/caressing a young supple body didn't sit well with me. Gross! ........ That said, there's NOTHING NEW about a MAN Hankering/Lusting after 'young flesh' -- Women (if they are straight).

An underrated gem...
Verified purchase
This film is, if nothing else, a great story. The quest for true love runs amok in this stellar cast driven film. Geoffrey Rush turns in a stellar performance of a man whose life is such a perfect routine, that when he finds love, he's blinded to all else. Donald Sutherland plays a brilliant co-star, bringing his usual wit to a slowly developing storyline. As of this writing, I was unable to find the movie on Blu-ray, but this underrated gem deserves a place in my movie collection. The video and audio quality is impeccable. If you like good stories, and like to be entertained, give this one a try.

A beautiful & tragic love story.
Verified purchase
This is one of my favorite movies with Geoffrey Rush, the way uses art to isolate his desires for women is genius. He is the perfect character for this story; a must see for the intellegent mind.

Classic Twist Movie That Needs A Sequel
Verified purchase
A classic twist movie. Excellent cinematography, writing, acting, direction, etc. I figured out the twist several minutes before it happened, but that didn't spoil the movie for me. I certainly hope there will be a sequel. But the sequel needs to be well-thought-out, or it could be a major disappointment when following this very cleverly-written classic.

You'll not find many better films made in this decade.
Verified purchase
Probably the best movie made this year, though it just wasn't featured at any major movie chains. Part psychological thriller, part love story, and with an excellent cast and script, you'll not find many better films made in this decade.
