Francofonia

7 yrs 88 minutes 2015 6.6

In Francofonia, Aleksandr Sokurov portrays a rather unknown story from the German occupied Paris during World War II. Minister of Propaganda Goebbels has ordered the director of the German commission for the Conservation of Art, Franz Wolff-Metternich, to take care of France’s art treasures and bring them to Germany. Wolff-Metternich doesn’t follow the order, instead he decides to cooperate with the chief of The Louvre to preserve the treasures of the museum. Hynek Pallas writes in DN that the film is “a must see for anyone interested in nation, museum and art”, rating the movie 4 out of 5.
