Tempesta.....

An art authenticator runs the risk of being framed while verifying several near-priceless paintings in Venice-set "Tempesta." Watchable, attractively made tale of art-based detective work has way more sex and nearly as many murders as "The Da Vinci Code" without a speck of dreary religious speculation. Forgery is the theme, but making a wildly implausible narrative stick together just long enough to reach the finale is helmer Tim Disney's mostly met goal. Venice looks great, and modest international bookings look likely. Sometimes stilted but entertaining pic will play on cable for as long as the city boasts gondoliers.
