The Best Offer
The Best Offer is about Virgil Oldman, an eccentric, not very likeable antique expert and great collector of portraits of women, living in Italy. Virgil is often hired to value other people's art, but says many times that a picture is false, so that he can buy it at a cheap price. One day Virgil is approached by an agoraphobic woman to evaluate a large collection of paintings and antiques that she has inherited. Every time Virgil comes to the woman's house, she hides herself. Virgil becomes completely charmed by the mysterious woman and the whole thing soon developes into a dangerous obsession that makes him want to see her at all costs.
