First screened in September 2015
Director: Aleksandr Sokurov. Cast: Benjamin Utzerath, Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Vincent Nemeth, Johanna Korthals Altes. Screenplay: Patricio Guzmán.

Twitter Capsule: Louvre, the End of History. Witty, moving essay on doomed objects surviving, enemies collaborating, time as tight knot.

VOR:   Not everyone will be as gripped as I was. Seems made for Sokurov's own pleasure, almost mirthfully at times, despite its earnest material and intricate construction.
