"Museum Hours" Saturday September 21th, Shattuck Cinemas @ 6:25pm

Set in large part within the grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum in Vienna, the latest feature from writer/director Jem Cohen (Benjamin Smoke) tells the appealing, low-key story of Johann (Bobby Sommer), a philosophical museum guard who befriends Anne (Mary Margaret O'Hara), an enigmatic visitor who has never been to Vienna before, in town to look after her cousin who is in a coma at the hospital. Anne and Johann gradually become friends as he helps her with translation, muses on the artwork at the museum, and introduces her to some of the sights of the city. The striking museum setting, with its roomful of Brueghel paintings, recalls The Mill and the Cross and Russian Ark. As Anne and Johann venture outside of the museum, it feels as if each place they visit is infused with elements from the paintings they admire. Striking yet subtle, Cohen's camera reveals how a moment in everyday life, contemplated with insight, can slide into the realm of timeless painterly bliss

We will meet for the film at 6:25pm, so we can say hello and find good seats. After the film, we'll go for something to eat and/or drink nearby. If you need to get in touch or can't find the group, please call me on my mobile: 510.499.7806.

    Hate to cancel but my cold is getting worse, not better, so I'm going to lay low.
