Yawn. Does anyone want to watch a bunch of Austrians (I say this and some of my closest relatives are Austrians) sitting around a table bla bla blaing at a meeting? I have been to this museum. It is amazing. Everything about it astounds. This movie stands back like a fly on the wall. It needed to get close and showcase the art and artifacts that are so captivating. This movie really does not do the museum justice. It feeds the idea that museums are boring and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is anything but.

An interesting documentary about the steps leading up to the reopening of the museum in Vienna after a closure of ten years. The management hierarchy was an interesting aside.

very disappointing. You don't really see the building and the collection of the museum but a lot of boring meetings of the museum's personnel, who are very full of themselves apparently believe that they are very interesting people.

Interesting, but a bit tedious with all the meetings and intricate details of working toward a total new concept for this museum in Vienna. If you are fascinated by all the unseen aspects of a great museum, you will probably enjoy this film. bookwoman_cat & Abby Tabby

Very boring. This is a behind the scenes look, with no explanation as to what they are doing, very little to no dialect. Not worth the time.
