Quotes

[first lines]
Lemmy Caution: Can we tell the story of time? Time itself, in its own essence? No, we can't. It would be useless. A story with the words: "And then time has passed and then followed its own course" and so and so. No one in their perfect mind would write such narrative. It would be like trying to hold a single note or just one accord for a whole hour and call it music.

Philosophic approach to a movie...
8 January 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was specifically interested in that movie because I live in Germany and the reunification of the two parts of Germany in 1990 certainly was one of the most important political events in Europe since the second world war. Godard's movie neither is a movie in the traditional sense nor a documentary. It's rather a philosophical approach to that event - Godard shows short fragments of fictional and non-fictional episodes, opinions and facts served with an interesting musical (classical) music score. The movie itself is split into many titled chapters that reminded me of the last episodes of the fantastic japanese anime 'neon genesis evangelion'. But on the whole it's rather tiring to sit through the whole film because I could't follow all of the director's original intentions. Perhaps that film would be a perfect object for university students...
