Before Dawn charts the years of exile in the life of famous Jewish Austrian writer Stefan Zweig, his inner struggle for the "right attitude" toward the events in war torn Europe, and his search for a new home.
In Spain was only released in 8 theaters. Released only in subtitled version. See more »
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'.
