Before this film no one else, including the French was ever permitted to film the Louvre. The priceless treasures and incomparable art can be shared through the eyes of award-winning filmmaker Lucy Jarvis. Set against the panoramic history of France, and hosted by Charles Boyer, The Louvre, regal palace and home to so many of the world's great gifts of art, becomes THE LOUVRE, a film acclaimed and winner of fourteen national and international awards, so rich in its story that even the Mona Lisa smiles.

Filmed in 1978, the documentary is obviously dated. But this doesn't really matter as the bulk of the material deals with the history of the Louvre from the 12th century until after the second world war. Few pieces from the museum are highlighted, and recent changes are of course omitted, but the overview of the construction of the building, and the former occupants, is very interesting.

Uh...the box and copyright date make you believe this film is from 2005, but it is actually from the 70's (maybe even 60s). You do learn a lot about the history of the Louvre...but it is so hokey and outdated in terms of the technology, you can't help but laugh the whole time. Still worth a view if you want to learn about the Louvre, though.
