Ephraim Horowitz's wild imagination places the 17th century power broker Machiavelli in 20th century America in this fantastical comedy about the lost notebook of Leonardo De Vinci mysteriously appearing in a New York auction house. The book is worth $30 million, but the couple who found it must reveal how they have acquired it. Their story involves academic research, phantasmal mysticism, and even love. In summary, "Machiavelli told them." An entertaining picture that offers some food for thought.
