A museum attendant and a Canadian visitor have a chance encounter in a gallery at Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum.
A guard at Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches art museum befriends a middle-aged Montrealer visiting a hospitalized cousin in Vienna. Writer-director Jem Cohen’s film can seem at times more documentary or even art appreciation class than drama -- but in a good way. Its watery rhythms and matte, matter-of-fact mood can be transfixing -- especially as the camera pans over the museum’s Bruegel’s. In English and German, with subtitles.
