Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating insight into the world of art historians, art museums, art exhibitions and an intimate look at Bosch's paintings. I saw Bosch's work through their eyes and could view his pantings from an entirely new point of view.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only of interest to art historians I only made it 20 minutes into this. I was hoping for something about the life and influences of the artist. Instead I watched a team of Dutch art historians bickering with a team of Spanish curators over how exactly to investigate the paintings in detail. The film has no narration, just these professionals arguing in different languages. But on the plus side the film does feature a lot of ultra-high resolution closeups of the paintings.
