For Ever Mozart

Godard (director/writer/editor) casts a quizzical eye on Sarajevo, art and the cinema: in the first half, a group of naive youngsters drive to Bosnia to perform Alfred de Musset's play On ne badine pas avec l'amour; in the second, a film-maker strives to get 'Fatal Bolero' in the can. The two parts are linked by Godard's insistence on a cinema of the intellect (dis-chord; absurdism; quotation; provocation), and by his recognition of the futility of the exercise ('Cinema substitutes our gaze with a world in harmony with our desires...something essential is renounced').
