4.0 out of 5 stars Due some kind of re-evaluation January 7, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
For Ever Mozart is a strange bilingual pun, for in French it sounds like Dreaming Mozart. So, the title has at least two meanings, and I would add another in that severing the "for" in "forever" suggests the "four" segments which comprise the film. If that kind of thinking—bilingual puns and stretching for meaning—is alien to you, then For Ever Mozart is probably not worth your time. There's very little plot or characterization on offer, and the usual pleasures of film are not to be found here.

Instead, we're firmly in what we might call Godard's "aesthetic phase." This has two meanings. The first is that we're in the era of Godard's increasing obsession with the beauty of nature. For Ever Mozart gives us some lovely images to look at. Godard is a master of framing, and the theatrical plot gives him every excuse to provide us with striking tableaux. The other important meaning behind "aesthetic" in this case is a reference to philosophy, which also increasingly occupies Godard throughout the eighties and nineties. From his dialogue—which often sounds like a philosophical text—to his allusions to philosophy, For Ever Mozart draws on and explicitly references a host of other cultural artifacts to fuel Godard's reflection on cinema and Sarajevo. Godard demands that we follow him, catching what allusions we can, forming the pieces with our ability to take in the beautiful imagery, and ultimately piecing together a film that is as much our film as Godard's.

Looking back, I think critics have dismissed For Ever Mozart for being Godard-by-numbers. It has all the things we expect from Godard except something surprising.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic October 30, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This and "Film Socialism" are the two greatest late period Godard films in my opinion. It encapsulates everything he was experimenting with in the 80's and 90's and recoups those discoveries with the innovations of his 60's work.

"For Ever Mozart" is as good as any of Godard's famous 60's films and better than many. It is a beautiful meditation on the value of art, film and music in society and well worth owning for any cinephile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great late Godard film October 1, 2006
Format:DVD
I wasn't so impressed with "In Praise of Love", but "Forever Mozart" is incredible. Godard certainly is still relevent today, even if filmgoers increasingly turn away from him for not making a-b-c easy Hollywood films. Check this out and keep and open mind and you should enjoy this thoughtful film.
