For Ever Mozart
Jean-Luc Godard, 1996
France/Switzerland | French with English subtitles | Format: Restored DCP | 85 minutes

An acting troupe journeys to Bosnia to mount a production of Musset’s "On ne badine pas avec l’amour." When the actors arrive, they are taken captive, tortured, and executed. Godard returned to the war in Sarajevo in his films and his short videos many times. This 1996 feature was the most sweeping of those projects. "It may be a depressing film made in honor of those who have shed blood," wrote Olivier Séguret in Libération, "but it depends also on a mad physical exultation." For Ever Mozart is presented as a new DCP from Cohen Media.
