Movie review

Alexander Sokurov’s documentary Francophonie was presented in competition at the 72nd Venice Festival, where it won two awards. The story centers on the Louvre Museum during the German occupation and nowadays. In a string of historical summaries and staged shots, Sokurov as narrator leads the viewer through the museum corridors, wondering what price must and can be paid to save the culture.
