In addition to Free app of the week, every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week, whose purchase is for $ 3. The title selected this time was Francophone: Louvre Under Occupation, by director Alexander Sokurov.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
Award-winning Russian director Aleksandr Sokurov tells the story of the Nazi occupation of Paris in 1940, focusing mainly on the role of the Louvre Museum. Mixing a scripted dramatic plot with real World War II images, the filmmaker creates a sophisticated production that seeks to unravel the importance of art in extreme times and the fate of priceless works during Hitler's period in France.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, also sent us a personalized comment about the film:
O Movie of the week it was classified as a drama, but after watching it, I consider it a documentary. It is not my favorite genre, but I have seen several films that change the standard tone and become interesting experiences. This, for example, mixes real images with dramatizations both in the present and in the past to try to situate the script, to show the reality of what happened and to show the wealth that the Louvre possesses (after all, the Louvre is the main character). I recommend it for fans of the genre and for history lovers who want to have a raw view of what happened.
