Movie Info

Ironic, humorless and obscurely plotted, this highly symbolic effort is somewhat loosely divided into four sections. The rather free-form narrative begins as a noted philosophy professor, her husband, and their maid prepare to board a Bosnia-bound train. After disembarking in the war-torn country, the travelers are captured by Serbians.

Critic Reviews for For Ever Mozart

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

If what you're expecting is an austere, lyrical essay that takes many tangents and requires serious deciphering, For Ever Mozart is a film to be savored.

May 20, 2003

The fact that he creates such a haphazard structure for them, and neglects to develop his character or devise much of a plot, suggests that Godard is more interested in talking to himself than to his audience.

For Ever Mozart's wryly postmodern take on art vs. reality struck even some longtime Godard defenders as unconscionable at worst, tedious at best.

Art can't hold back the world's horrors in Jean-Luc Godard's grave and quizzical fugue

Sep 6, 2009 | Full Review…

At times maddeningly obtuse and precipitously pretentious, at others remarkably moving and profound, this is, quite simply, a Godard film.

Aug 29, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Random and uninspired, the film gets a few points for its looks, but nada for its plot.

Audience Reviews for For Ever Mozart


In the confusingly fractured narrative, actors plan to stage a play in Sarajevo and a director tries to finish filming a movie, but as Jean Luc-Godard confesses it's all really just "signs bathing in the light of absent explanation." Everyone talks like a philosophy professor; it's brainy, but mostly a bore.
