Movie about art forgery

I saw this movie (in color) approximately 15 years of ago on German TV. I don’t think it was a German movie; I can’t be sure which language the original is shot in, however.

Part of the plot how I recall it (some details might be wrong): A successful, well-known painter dies, but his friends manage to keep his death a secret and start to forge his painting to sell for profit. The main forger begins a relationship with a woman who I think was the death painter’s girlfriend/wife (I think I remember a sex scene in the atelier between the two). I don’t remember much esle except that the scam is discovered (unsurprisingly) at some point.

  1. Yes thank you!

    Apperantly I didn’t realize it was part of the Ripley-saga. Fifteen years wasn’t even a bad guess then. Watching a movie about Beltracchi made me think of it, can’t remember if it was any good or if I even finished the movie haha.
