The Louvre (An education in art history)
28 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Louvre; What a wonderful, fun and informative romp through the 800 year history of the largest and greatest museum on the planet. And the film producers could not have gotten anyone more passionate and more appropriate than a lover of art, life and letters, the inimitable Charles Boyer who narrates this masterpiece. He agreed to narrate this film with the condition that he be allowed to narrate it as if he were making love to a beautiful woman. Such were the demands and character of Mr Boyer who indeed pulls this off admirably. The film is also sprinkled with many fascinating facts which makes the journey all the more interesting. One would have to visit the Louvre oneself to obtain a more complete history of this premier art institution. Many are unaware that the Louvre is not a "French" museum. It Is a "World" museum containing collections of art and artifacts bought and pillaged from around the world by the 800 years of French Aristocracy. At the Louvre you will see some of the greatest art masterpieces from the greatest countries and empires in the history of the world. Once you begin to learn of its history, you will appreciate the titanic effort the French committed to preserve its legacy and collections. I wholeheartedly recommend this film to those who contemplate visiting France and Paris as well as those who have been there many times like myself.
