Synopsis

 

An almost deserted museum, a guard wearing high heels, a cinephile thief and a Monet painting. In September 2000, Robert Z. was given permission by the National Museum in Poznań, Poland, to make a replica of Monet's painting ‘Beach in Pourville’. He was allowed to work in the quiet museum, which had no operational security cameras and was almost deserted on weekdays. Only one female guard was around, who every now and then alerted Robert inadvertently by the click-clack sound of her shoes. When he finished what he came for, he returned home. Only days later did the truth finally dawn on the museum staff. In this revealing story, Robert himself confesses about the events and consequences of that fateful day in the museum.
