A chance meeting sparks a deepening connection that draws them through the halls of the museum and the streets of the city.
This critically acclaimed drama depicts a security guard and a tourist who become friends amongst the artistic treasures of Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum.
I loved this film ! If you can't go to Vienna this film is close to it. I felt like I was there and the acting was magnificent !
Cohen explores the Museum as a space in which collapses with time. Well done!
This movie is a masterpiece. It has made me want to see everything Jem Cohen has ever done. It engages all the senses on every level.
Subtle, slow-moving, humanistic, reflective, disciplined in its unvarnished glimpse at two lives. An excellent work. Worth watching.
