An unlikely World War II platoon is tasked to rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their owners. The Monuments Men is a 2014 American-German war film directed by George Clooney, and written and produced by Clooney and Grant Heslov. It is loosely based on the non-fiction book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter. The film follows an Allied group from the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program that is given the task of finding and saving pieces of art and other culturally important items before Nazis destroy or steal them, during World War II.
