France / 1990 / 85 min.

What does the Louvre look like without the public? For the first time, a great museum lets a film crew get behind the scenes: the staff are hanging paintings, reorganizing rooms, moving works around, the guards are trying on their new uniforms... Little by little, characters appear, more and more of them, crossing paths and slowly weaving the threads of a narrative.Miles of underground passages... A sequence of scenes that let us in on the secrets of a museum... Stacks and reserves containing thousands of paintings, sculptures and objects... Places off limits to the public... A film blending the humdrum and the outstanding, the prosaic and the sublime, the comical and the dreamlike... The discovery of a city within a city... When the life of a major institution attains the realms of fiction.
