An antique dealer and a ceramicist walk into a sushi bar…

Screens in Canberra, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne.

Antique dealer Norio (Kiichi Nakai) has seen the worst, from badly-made fakes to cleverly fabricated documents. Some may call him an opportunist, but he’s just a man trying to make an honest living in the shady world of antiques. When he meets a talented ceramicist named Sasuke (Kuranosuke Sasaki, Samurai Hustle), it occurs to him that combining their skills can lead to greater things. Maybe, just maybe, they can pull of the greatest swindle in the world of Japanese antiques.

Antiques Roadshow meets Ocean’s 11 in this comical take on the serious world of antiques trading. We Make Antiques! is an entertaining crowd pleaser that also offers historical trivia on Rikyu and traditional ceramics.
