Francofonia may test the patience of the uninitiated, but viewers willing to delve into a beautifully filmed look at the intersection of art and war will be richly rewarded.

In the end, the film suffers from cultural overload.
"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.
Francofonia (2015) bristles at labeling. The latest whatsit by Russian titan Alexander Sokurov moves comfortably between categories. It stands three paces to the right of the essay film and three paces to the left of the docudrama.
This is one of the best films by the great Russian director Alexander Sokurov.
Enjoy scoping the things you can never quite get a look at because of the stampede of tourists, and mull over Sokurov's sentiment that the contents of the Louvre are worth more than all of France.
While Francofonia has very little to offer on the subject that's new, Sokurov is spry and chatty and keeps things continually engaging.
Sokurov raised any number of fascinating questions and unexpected historical perspectives in this engrossing documentary.
Francofonia is unusual, sometimes challenging, and always intriguing.
