The Great Museum
is a movie starring
Arnout Balis, Christian Beaufort-Spontin, and Marcello Farabegoli.
An in-depth look at daily life at one of the most famous cultural institutions in the world, The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
Unfortunately there are no subtitles - so if you don't speak or understand Austrian you must just watch this for the interior look of this mammoth museum.
If you are really interested - (as I was in certain parts) - what the people are actually saying is unnecessary because you can understand whats happening by just seeing what they are doing. Such as in the art restoration. But mostly you are left wondering.
For me personally the most interesting part of this documentary was at the very end as the camera pans through the ancient works tucked away in storage - certainly the most beautiful objects - and then the final scene of Tower of Babel by Brugel, and it's implied message of 'this too shall pass'.
