Synopsis

Documentary. The Zoology Gallery of the National Natural History Museum in Paris was closed to the public for a quarter of a century, leaving hundreds of stuffed animals in a forgotten twilight zone: mammals, fish, reptiles, insects, amphibians, birds, crustaceans... The film was shot during the renovation work in the gallery (from 1991 to 1994) and describes the resurrection of its strange residents.
