Synopsis

Documentary. What does the Louvre look like without the public? For the first time a great museum lets a film crew into its wings: people are hanging paintings, reorganising rooms, and moving works around. Little by little characters appear and weave together the threads of a narrative... From studios to stacks and reserves containing thousands of pictures, this is the discovery of a city within a city.
