This film portrays a real life story inspired by a group of interconnected art experts during World War II commissioned with recovering and rescuing paintings, sculptures and millions of other works stolen by the Nazis. The mission of those unremarkable heroes depicted sacrifice and service in this movie played by such stars as George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman and Bill Murray.

According to press specs the movie summary, “With the art hidden behind enemy lines, how could these guys hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievement.”

Did you know? Most great films were once great books. Be sure to check out the basis for the movie “The Monuments Men,” here.

I recently read an self-descripting interview here where Book Author Robert Edsel states, "It's impossible to tell all that story comprehensively in two hours, but I think they can get an understanding of what Hitler's intent was, with his (planned) Linz Museum and how art was used, and the role of these men and women - who were middle-aged museum curators and artists themselves - who volunteered for service to save all these things." The message is service & sacrifice for the greater good of mankind.
