Synopsis

An aging French movie director and his theater troupe attempt to film a new production of a Musset play in besieged Sarajevo. Along their journey they are captured and held in a prisoner of war camp, where they call for help from their friends in France.

Our take

Partly motivated by Susan Sontag’s staging of Waiting for Godot in Sarajevo, For Ever Mozart brings Godard back to the Bosnian War, a focus of his latter career. Told in four semi-linked episodes, the film is a melancholic, yet divine, reflection on cinema’s role in high art and the real world.
