A murder inside the Louvre, and clues in Da Vinci paintings, lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years, which could shake the foundations of Christianity.

The location of Fox Books in the movie is actually the location of a real-life Barnes & Noble, on Broadway and 83rd Street on the Upper West Side. The Barnes and Noble generated considerable neighborhood opposition when it opened in the early 1990s, as many feared it would drive a local bookseller, Shakespeare & Co. on 81st Street, out of business. In 1996 they closed their doors, with their two other locations remaining open. In 2018 they announced their return to the Upper West Side, opening a store on Broadway between West 69th and 70th streets.
Ironically, the big chain bookstores have been hammered by online retailers who offer even lower prices and greater convenience. Barnes & Nobel's main competitor, Borders, went under in 2014. With the rollback on huge downtown stores, which have to pay extravagant fees for their leases, smaller bookstores are reappearing in key locations. See more »

You know, sometimes I wonder...
Well... if I hadn't been Fox Books and you hadn't been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well, met...
Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn't have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, "Hey, how about... oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie... for as long as we both shall live?"
And you and I would have never been at war. And the only thing...

I'm from Germany and I love this film! It makes me happy to just watch it! When watching this film one comes to think why in real life such beauty in words and moments can't be achieved! The film does'nt get boring, even if watched for the 23rd time! It's pure magic - you could endlessly listen to the conversations, the beautiful music and enjoy the excellent acting! Other films try to come in too trendy with freaky music and sexual content(not that there's anything wrong with that) - but it's not a feelgood movie! Besides the puns and the lovely warm hearted atmosphere does the rest! To everyone who hasn't yet seen this movie - rent it, buy it - enjoy it!
