Posted by: Jennifer Amazing movie. I loved it, great acting i can't believe this is a true story. Thank God we had these men so we have our art today!
Posted by: Monique If you are interested in Art & WWII you will enjoy this. Clooney did a great job as actor and director of this movie. This movie didn't go to deep into the horrors of WWII so don't worry about that. It does make you sad but you are also happy and thankful that there were these people that saved art for us to enjoy now and how our world would be so different without it. The cast is amazing and does a great job of making light at some times that could have brought you to tears. A must see.
