Based on the true story of the Allies attempt during WWII to rescue mankind’s greatest artistic masterpieces The Monuments Men focuses on seven over-the-hill, out-of-shape museum directors, artists, architects, curators, and art historians and their race against time to save from destruction the world’s artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves. The small crew of seven servicemen belongs to the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program. 1000 years of culture hangs in the balance as the crew risk their lives behind enemy lines in the greatest treasure hunt ever undertaken by man. Do they succeed? Well, would they make a film about it if they failed? Also, one trip to The Louvre in Paris should answer that question for you.
