The Rape of Europa is a slick, well shot, well directed, interesting, highly informative and still entertaining documentary from the directorial triumvirate of Bonni Cohen, Nicole Newnham and Richard Berge. The documentary uses the ebook by Lynn H. Nicholas of the same name as a type of runway for its exploration of the Nazi's systematic plundering of Europe's art. The movie incorporates interviews, voice over narration. vintage footage images and documents that all work cooperatively in making this documentary work in each respect. The movie takes its viewers on an in depth adventure of the topics through seven European countries, most notably France, Italy, Poland and Germany.The movie sheds light on Hitler's own private art career, from his rejection of Vienna's art Academy to his plans to amass the world's biggest art collection in his ideal city. Interesting and relatively unknown facts are uncovered that relate Hitler's art career to his actions as dictator. Hitler's antisemitism, as one interview topics suggests, was likely fueled by his rejection from Vienna's art Academy as the academy's panel was largely Jewish. Hitler also created a "hit-list" of popular works he wanted for his collection, most of which directly correspond to his invasion of different European countries. Art collecting was a highly necessary pastime among Nazi officials for a tons of reasons, as discussed largely with Herman Goering and Hitler himself who had amassed enormous, unparalleled private collections, largely through theft.Another highly interesting portion of the movie shows the perilous and miraculous adventure many of these works underwent. As a Nazi invasion loomed, hundreds of people, in France's globe popular Louvre for example, gathered and worked tirelessly, packing the priceless art and transferring it to castles throughout the French countryside. The daughter of the boy entrusted with the Mona Lisa is interviewed in the film.The movie examines the seventy-year plus struggle to restore and reclaim these stolen masterpieces, many of which remain unaccounted for. The allied position of fighting while simultaneously trying to maintain the hostage art is also discussed in detail, as well as the Allied efforts to return the art after it was repossessed. The movie is a must-see for art or WWII historians as well as those simply interested.
I have just returned from this movie and am other pleased customer. It everytime feels a bit strange going to the cinema to see a documentary, but docs everytime turn out to be so much better and more fulfilling than the blockbusters. A true whirlwind of emotions, the Rape of Europa is something in which everyone living in the western globe has a stake. The destructive force of fight on human beings and those things which are crucial to our humanity, our art, is place into a perspective that is about as balanced as we can hope to get. Many positive things I would tell have already been said, so I will offer one criticism: the town of Dresden, once named the "Florence on the Elbe," was not mentioned in the film. As perhaps the worst bombed town of the war, and a town which had no military value whatsoever but was of incalculable worth culturally, I felt this was a major omission. Of course, the movie covered an nice amount of ground, and the Dresden bombing remains a touchy topics for many, so I can comprehend the constraints of time and the need to avoid charged tangents. However, as someone who has lived in that town (many parts of which remained ruins until only recently), I still would have liked to have heard it mentioned. That said, the movie was unbelievable on a whole. If only everything they showed in the cinemas were half as good.
Greetings again from the darkness. Watching the 2014 release of The Monuments Boys inspired me to re-watch this fascinating documentary on the same subject. Thanks to the interviews of true life Monuments Boys like Harry Ettlinger, Kenneth Lindsay, Charles Parkhurst and Bernard Taper, we better understand the overwhelming point these people were on, and how even today, some wars wage on over the rightful owners of artwork.To drive home the mission that there is more at stake than just pride, the situation of Klimt's "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I" is studied. Adele's niece continued her litigation vs Austria until a court finally awarded her the painting (and 3 others). She sold "Adele" for $135 million to a collector. So clearly the cause is not just for mother country. Economics enjoy a large role. Regardless, the more interesting portion of the storyline is the relentless pursuit of stolen artwork, artifacts, furniture and collectibles, and the attempts to return them to the rightful owners. That, combined with the devastating architecture destruction brought on by WWII, really create it a bittersweet story.The breathtaking photographs and archival movie footage deliever a clear understanding of the breadth of destruction. Seeing the before and after of the Monte Cassino monastery is just crushing. Gaining perspective on the damaged frescoes, some dating to 1360, when Pisa's Camposanto was bombed drives home the significance of culture and history. Seeing the aftermath of the bombing of Florence's iconic bridges brings tears to the eyes. The most impressive piece is that so much of Europe has been rebuilt in the past 7 decades. Maybe that goes to respond the question of whether a human life is worth protecting art. Folks survive and search a method ... even if Rafael's "Portrait of a Young Man" is still missing.This is based on the ebook by the Lynn Nicholas, and the movie does a terrific job of presenting how the fight impacted Russia, Germany, Italy, France, Austria and Poland. It's also tough to reconcile, as one of the Monuments Boys attempts, the concept that the Nazis were so attentive with the stolen artwork while simultaneously exterminating so many Jewish people. Maybe things would have been various if a young Adolph Hitler had been agreed to art school.
