| Very artsy.
"La Tour" (literally 'the tower') is a film about the Eiffel Tower. However, it's not the usual sort of movie, as there is no story but instead consists of an exploration of practically every inch of the structure by the camera crew. In other words, there is no actual story--just showing views of the tower, the elevator, the ground below as well as a stop-motion recreation of the tower being built. While this may all sound quite dull, the director (René Clair) had a wonderful eye and a great artistic touch here--and I actually found this film extremely watchable. A nice homage to a great structure--and a surprisingly good short film. This is just one you need to see for yourself--as mere words won't do it justice.
