For Ever Mozart
Year: 1996
Genre: War / Comedy / Drama
Rating: (0)
Country: France / Switzerland
Runtime: 84 min.
Director: Jean-Luc Godard
Studio: Avventura Films
Cast: Madeleine Assas / Ghalia Lacroix / Bérangère Allaux / Vicky Messica / Frédéric Pierrot / Harry Cleven / Michel Francini
Plot:
For Ever Mozart is an episodic film that follows a theater troupe from France attempting to put on a play in Sarajevo. Along their journey they are captured and held in a POW camp, and they call for help from their friends and relations in France. Director Jean-Luc Godard presents stories about this troop to ask how one can make art while slaughters like the one in Bosnia are taking place, and he throws in a strong critique of the European Union. For Ever Mozart is one of Godard's most disjointed and difficult films. Its stories sometimes seem to form a whole and at other times the links among them are unclear. One gets the impression that in each episode Godard attempts to start a film only to come to the conclusion that it is impossible to continue. It features some of the most beautiful shots of tanks in the cinema.
