MUSEUM HOURS

Austria/USA 2012
A Canadian woman from Montreal is called to visit a comatose relative in Vienna, and, not knowing anyone there, wanders about, frequenting the Kunstistorisches Museum, and in doing so befriends one of the gallery attendents. He takes her under his wing and together they visit the cousin, as well as other sites of interest around Vienna. There doesn’t seem to be much purpose in this film other than to depict the unlikely friendship between the two. We do get some interesting shots of some of the magnificent art works in the museum, but they are random and unexplained, except for a series by Breughel, in which a docent discussed the life and times in which they were painted.
