DIRECTOR: Aleksandr Sokurov Tuesday Film Series

A tour of the Louvre serves as a meditation on art. The film also explores how the museum avoided being plundered during the Nazi occupation of France, and depicts the ghost of Napoleon wandering among the exhibits.

Reviews
Blending archival footage, actor re-creation and special effects (sometimes all in the same shot), he creates a sense of specific place and time - and, in doing so, crafts a sort of cinematic ode to art.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
Much more than just a Louvre gift shop souvenir, Alexander Sokurov's latest art-related film is a dense, visually inventive essay about the legendary Paris museum.
