Critic Reviews for Francofonia
"Francofonia" is terribly over-directed and seems strange just for the sake of being strange.
This is disjointed and dreary, its power diluted by Sokurov's constant, self-important narration.
Francofonia is a brilliant meditation on art, on war - and what happens to art when nations go to war.
As Sokurov examines a pivotal point in the Louvre's history and gives us a virtual tour of the magnificent museum, he makes larger points about the vital importance of art throughout human history. This is one of the most beautiful films of the year.
Near the one-hour mark, the filmmaker asks, "You aren't tired of listening to me yet?" If you aren't, you will be soon.
