Very interesting for those who love books, antiques and esoteric
6 August 2019 | by psaccheriSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the documentary, it is well done. I am not a believer in any of the esoteric philosophies, nor religion. But I find very interesting not only the existence of such a great library, of which I didn't knwo the existence, full of rare and antique manuscripts and books, but also the seeds its owners and librarians can give you to make your interest in the matter grow. So I recommend the movie to anybody, of course it is a documentary, no fiction images inside.
