Storyline

"Notre Music" is divided in three kingdoms: Hell, Purgatory and Paradise like in the Dante's Inferno in the Divine Comedy. Hell shows footages of many wars; Purgatory mixes reality and fiction in Sarajevo; and Paradise is a surrealistic view of a beach "protected" by the American Marines. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Music in his message
24 February 2005 | by robgarza2See all my reviews

"Our Music" is the result of a working man, a man that has been investigating sound and image for so many movies. As time goes by, Godard's images are simpler, but his editing has become tremendously complex.

The film rests over Dante's "Divine Comedy": Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. Hell is a montage of war stock material. Purgatory is Sarajevo today and Paradise is plain nature guarded by U.S. Marines. As usual, many of the dialogs are made up of quotes and the author is rarely quoted, because through the editing the made-up phrases become humanity's questioning.

By playing with the World's sounds and images, deconstructing time and space, the poetry comes naturally, not forced at all. Godard looks at todays technified world from a distance, mixing things and themes to see what happens, to bring up new possibilities and questions.

As usual happens with this French filmmaker, the sound design is astonishing.

If you like the work of Godard, you will love this film. If you don't like Godard's work, don't waste your time looking at this gem.
