Storyline

Do you still remember how, long ago, we trained our thoughts? Most often we'd start from a dream. We wondered how, in total darkness, colours of such intensity could emerge within us. In a soft, low voice. Saying great things. Surprising, deep and accurate matters. Image and words. Like a bad dream written on a stormy night. Under western eyes. The lost paradises. War is here.

Trivia

« Te souviens-tu encore comment nous entraînions autrefois notre pensée ? Le plus souvent nous partions d'un rêve... Nous nous demandions comment dans l'obscurité totale Peuvent surgir en nous des couleurs d'une telle intensité D'une voix douce et faible Disant de grandes choses D'importantes, étonnantes, de profondes et justes choses Image et parole On dirait un mauvais rêve écrit dans une nuit d'orage Sous les yeux de l'Occident Les paradis perdus La guerre est là... »

Not for everyone
2 March 2019 | by pany82006See all my reviews

You can very well like Godard, and "Goodbye to Language" and still find this absolutely pretentious and meaningless. To me, in this "work" ( or "book" if you want to call it, it's definitely not a "movie") the substance does not justify the framework. I looked at my watch trying to figure out how much longer I'd have to sit through, and realized we're 9 minutes into the movie! NINE!!! I left the theatre after 40 minutes realizing I can find better things to do in the next 45 minutes.
