It peers into the twin galleries of art and life, and in particular follows the brief intersection of lives between a security guard (Bobby Sommer) and Anne, one of the museum's regular visitors (Mary Margaret O'Hara).
...a unique film that celebrates art, the city of Vienna and the profound friendship born of a kindness from a local to a visitor without many resources whose very trip is itself an act of great compassion.
Museum Hours is less interested in plot than in using its characters as a way to give ideas shape and voice; however, because their performances are natural and improvisatory, the movie never seems didactic.
