Summary: In 2003 an optimistic start was made on the renovation of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The Netherlands major tourist attraction would re-open its doors in fresh splendour in 2008. But alas, right from the start the grand project was opposed by unyielding counter-forces and Rembrandt's palace changed into an, apparently permanent building site. To make her unique and prize-wining documentary series, Oeke Hoogendijk filmed behind the closed doors of the museum for ten years. What meant to be a standard length documentary grew into a four-part epic about ambition, love of art and typically Dutch decision-taking processes, and finally 'part four' the historic and emotional 'homecoming' of the masterpieces in the spiny of 2013.
