An amusing art historical comedy
23 July 2017 | by geoff-345See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film that I viewed in the original German/French soundtrack. I found it visually spectacular. There was so much attention paid to detail in the sets. From an art history point of you one was transported through time with the changing styles of art. The actors were convincing and very amusing. I'd watch it again!
