Watch: Two Lonely Souls Connect in Vienna in Exclusive Trailer For Locarno Standout 'Museum Hours'

One of the standouts at last year’s Locarno Film Festival, Jem Cohen’s narrative debut “Museum Hours,” has a new trailer that makes a clear case for why Indiewire’s Eric Kohn called it “a powerfully contemplative look at the transformative ability of all art” in his glowing review out of the event.

Set mainly in and around Vienna’s grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum, the film concerns a middle-aged museum guard who befriends a vistor dealing with her cousin’s debilitating illness. Sensing her isolation in the big city, he quickly forms a bond with the woman.

“Although its winding trajectory can come across as sleepy and even
lethargic, the casual pace heightens the greater serenity of the work,” Kohn wrote in his review. “The assortment of conversational pathways deepens the movie’s
intellectual appeal, ensuring that it never devolves into a prototypical
death drama.”

The fillm opens June 28 at IFC Center and Lincoln Plaza, followed by national rollout. Watch the exclusive trailer below:

One of my favorite films from the recent San Francisco International Film Festival, where director Jem Cohen was honored with the fest's Persistance of Vision Award.
