In the new romantic comedy I Feel Pretty, Amy Schumer stars as Renee, who desperately wants to be one of the “pretty” girls. After a freak accident during spin class, her dream comes true when she wakes up to a completely new reflection, believing she is now the most beautiful woman on the planet. The catch? To everyone else, she looks exactly the same.
The story of the Louvre museum through the eyes of Monet, Degas, Cezanne, Matisse, Chagall, Picasso, Giacometti…
The artists who invented modern art started from here, with the certainty that “there is everything in the Louvre; that one can learn and love everything, in the Louvre” (Cézanne).
Because it’s not a question of ”a”museum but of “the” Museum.
At the same time, the Louvre is the symbol of what modern artists often called “destruction”: the past to compare with, tradition to break free from.
The story develops from the tales of modern art maestros who go to the Louvre and establish a love/hate relationship with it. The stories of these modern artists are the starting point for a series of narratives and tours inside the Louvre, that allow us to see the museum with new eyes, and from an entirely different perspective compared to the usual documentaries on the museum.

The remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display offer unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. The film also offers the chance to step inside two official royal residences – Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle – to learn more about the artist, and Joseph Smith, the man who introduced Canaletto to Britain.
