€ 15.00 tax included

After Nicolas de Crécy and Marc-Antoine Mathieu, it is Eric Liberge’s turn to explore the Louvre, at night, when the works come to life…

Bastien, a young deaf man, is going for training at the Louvre. He meets a mysterious character by the name of Fu Zhi Ha, who introduces himself in sign language as the night watchman, and the two quickly form a friendship. One night, the watchman reveals the true nature of his job to his young friend. The artists breathed all their creative force into the works of art, giving them each a soul. But these forces are like caged lions with an uncontrollable need to break free from their frame to avoid becoming moribund and irreversibly altering the art itself…
