The Booksellers

15 yrs 99 minutes 2019 7.3

In The Booksellers we get to step into an enchanting world full of the magic that follows old books. The documentary depicts dreamy antiquarians and eccentric booksellers who take us on a journey among shelves of rare, historical treasures. With its essence in preserving our past and securing the future of the physical books, and a watchful eye in search of rarities and treasures. In addition to being a tribute to history's foremost storytelling medium, it is also an insight into what is to come. Stefan Hedmark at Aftonbladet writes in his review that “The booksellers is nerdy, interesting and old-fashioned, with his Woody Allen-like image of the intellectual New York. To the tones of jazz, of course.”
