Part poetry, part journalism, part philosophy, master filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard's 'Notre Musique' is a lyrical reflection on war through the ages. The film is structured into three Dantean Kingdoms: Hell, Purgatory and Heaven. The journey begins in Hell, modern warfare represented by images of battle and devastation gleaned from movies, TV and newsreels. Purgatory consists largely of discussions between writers and journalists drawn to Sarajevo for a literary conference. Finally, Paradise is conceived as a small beach guarded by Marines from the United States. At the same time, the film also follows the parallel stories of two Israeli women, one drawn to the light and one drawn towards darkness. One for the cine-literate.
