Gripping documentary narrated by actress Joan Allen about Adolf Hitler's plunder and destruction of thousands of Europe's most famous artworks during World War II, and the subsequent efforts to find those which survived and restore them. Based on the book by Lynn H. Nicholas (who also appears), the film, written and directed by Richard Berge, Bonni Cohen and Nicole Newnham, tells a fascinating story as compelling as any dramatic film, and poignantly demonstrates the lengths to which ordinary people were willing to go to save these masterpieces, regardless of the danger to their physical well-being. Some disturbing war imagery. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
