Art for whom? ... reflections on the Pompidou Center
A confrontation between Paris' cultural "monster" on the plateau Beaubourg and the enigmatic-smile lady down the street. The filmmaker visits France's zany "democratic" art complex , and later the Louvre, to discover something about how we feel in museums. Excellent for use in French classes.
Godzilla Meets Mona Lisa takes the viewer on a splendid tour of the Pompidou Center, and filmmaker Arlyck is a fine, cheeky guide. This film is fun--and funny too--which can be said of very few films about art.
