A Grande Arte (Exposure)

I suppose this movie got a lot of guys developing an interest for floor to ceiling mirrors and incense sticks.

What I am talking about?

The training methods of Hermes The Knife Master of course: Same methods he applied during his schooling of an American photographer in the dark art of South American knife fighting.

Why does an american photographer do that? Never mind, the story has plot holes so big you could drive a truck through it.

But if you can look past that minor flaw you got one of the best movies about knife fighting in existence: The fighting scenes are well performed and least to a person like me who`s master plan when confronted with a knife is squealing: "He/she/it got a KNIFE!" (And RUN!)

So if you are some socially alienated shiv nerd who likes to watch sweating guys fondle Applegate-Fairbairn knives in a morgue: This is THE movie to you.
