Filmed in 1978, the documentary is obviously dated. But this doesn't really matter as the bulk of the material deals with the history of the Louvre from the 12th century until after the second world war. Few pieces from the museum are highlighted, and recent changes are of course omitted, but the overview of the construction of the building, and the former occupants, is very interesting.

Uh...the box and copyright date make you believe this film is from 2005, but it is actually from the 70's (maybe even 60s). You do learn a lot about the history of the Louvre...but it is so hokey and outdated in terms of the technology, you can't help but laugh the whole time. Still worth a view if you want to learn about the Louvre, though.
