Rotten Tomatoes: 96%

Acclaimed filmmaker Jem Cohen's new feature, "Museum Hours", is a mesmerizing tale of two adrift strangers who find refuge in Vienna's grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum. Johann, a museum guard, spends his days silently observing both the art and the visitors. Anne, suddenly called to Vienna from overseas, has been wandering the city in a state of limbo. A chance meeting sparks a deepening connection that draws them through the halls of the museum and the streets of the city. The exquisitelyphotographed "Museum Hours" is an ode to the bonds of friendship, an exploration of an unseen Vienna, and the power of art to both mirror and alter our lives.

1 hr. 46 min


"Museum Hours" is every bit as masterfully conceived and executed as the art works that serve as the film's lively cast of supporting characters.

Relationships between humans and art are perceptively explored in this unassuming yet quietly charming character study.

    The movie was different. I think maybe they were trying to put a lot of symbolism in it with the art--but I didn't get it. It was nice to see people from the group--the long week caught up with me so I didn't go to Club Isabella. Thanks Susan for organizing the event.

    Interesting concept but not developed/executed well. As always, fun and interesting time at dinner. Thanks to Susan for a wonderful evening.

    The film was very slow moving as well as being difficult to get involved. ChAracter development
    as very weak. Theonly redeeming factor was coming away with an appreciation for art. Club Isabella was "pricey"'

    • Lynda

      Yes, I agree. In the end, it felt as if I had spent many hours-- days, weeks even-- with the main character, and yet I still knew nothing about who she was.

      August 31, 2013

  • Lynda

    Though very slow moving, I liked how the film gave me the feeling of appreciating art everywhere, in everyday objects and people.
    Nice to meet some recent additions to the group.

    Sad to miss this, but I'm just not up to the drive today. Hope Diane will take my seat at the table!

    My evening is free now. Any chance I can still come? Why are RSVPs closed?

    August 30, 2013

    • Renu

      RSVP's are for restaurants only. We close them because we have to provide attendance numbers to the restaurant ahead of time. However, you are always welcome to join us for the movie. And, you might be able to come to the restaurant also.....assuming someone is NOT able to attend this meetup at the last minute.

      I RSVPd no but I am changing my mind. However, my thing is saying that RSVPS are closed. Is there any way I can come to Museum hours this Friday? Deb Solomon
