A Real Vermeer will be released 3 november in Dutch Cinemas. The historical film based on a true story about the legend Master Forger Han van Meegeren premiered in september at the Dutch Film Festival. Dewi Reijs plays his wife Anna van Meegeren.
Talented young artist, Han van Meegeren (Jeroen Spitzenberger), is a rebel in the 1920’s Dutch art scene; not because his work is avant garde, but because it is in the style of Old Masters like Rembrandt and Vermeer.
When he falls madly in love with Jolanka, the wife of Holland’s most important critic, he makes a powerful enemy who destroys his career. To take revenge, he sets out to produce a perfect fake Vermeer to fool the art world and humiliate his enemy. Soon he is making a fortune from his forgeries, but when a high-ranking Nazi, Hermann Göring, knocks on his door, looking to get hold of a Vermeer for his own collection, Han finds himself caught in a web of betrayal and deceit with his life spinning out of control.
