This visual tour of the dramatically re-figured Louvre takes viewers into the museum's newest additions and oldest treasures -- vast sculpture courts, the Taureaux of Khorsabad installation, and the apartments and offices of royals and their attendants. Narrated by French poet Yves Bonnefoy, this sumptuous film showcases some of France's most prized possessions, from the winged Victory of Samothrace, the Venus de Milo, and the inimitable Mona Lisa to lesser-known objets d'art from medieval and ancient times. A captivating, intimate introduction to the most glorious (and daunting) of the world's art collections.
