Product description

Product Description

Francofonia is the story of two remarkable men, louvre director Jacques Jaujard and Nazi Occupation officer Count Franziskus Wolff-Metternich - enemies then collaborators - whose alliance would be the driving force behind the preservation of museum treasures. v explores the relationship between art and power, the Louvre museum as a living example of civilization, and what art tells us about ourselves even in the midst of one of the bloodiest conflicts the world has ever seen.

If I had any will left after watching the bulk of this awful piece of work I would have sought a refund: not because it is one of the most terrible outrages in the history of cinema but because, in spite of the Amazon app claiming it to be in English it is 98% in Russian. The remaining 2% added light relief by being in French or German.
Good grief. Over what seems like six or seven hours, we are treated to acting more wooden than the chairs being sat on or the doors which on at least one occasion an actor struggled to open. We are assailed with shots of various ships in storms accompanied by amateur video effects aiming to give the impression that it is being seen on a computer screen. Whilst on video effects, do we need fake film scratches? Do we need a representation of the sound track at the edge of the film? Do we need any of it? Enough rhetoric: the answer is a clear No.
What better way to spend an evening? For little more than the cost of the hire I could have bought a tube of Veet for Men which would surely have caused less pain.

Am unable to watch this as no english sub titles, although they are billed as being present. Please correct error, and provide refund or free viewing.
Looks an intriguing portrayal.

I've paid good money to watch this film as part of research for my 4th novel. There are no English subtitles available which wasn't stated before I bought it. Refund please!

The audio was not in English and there were no English subtitles. A complete waste of time renting it.
