This is a documentary, but not in the BBC sense that a photogenic presenter leaps around telling you where to look and what to think. Instead a sedate camera follows the inhabitants of the Louvre outwith their opening hours. The place is indeed an artistic Gormenghast, an ingenious rambling palace filled with great art. Not a great deal happens, we see inconsequential discussions about hanging paintings, or follow a keeper down twisting subterranean corridors, but the documentary takes you behind the scenes to see places most of us will never go.
In its serene way, it is a very beautiful film to be cherished.
