'For Ever Mozart' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Thu Oct 17, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

World politics and art will collide in Jean-Luc Godard's 1996 episodic film coming to Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Cohen Media Group is preparing 'For Ever Mozart' for Blu-ray on January 7.

A grizzled film director sets out with several members of his household (including the fictitious granddaughter of Albert Camus) to stage a Musset play in embattled Sarajevo. As these modern-day Quixotes proceed on their fool's quest through the bloody chaos of Bosnia, Godard provides witty, wintry updates of earlier masterpieces, including 'Weekend' (journey of bourgeois buffoons through an apocalyptic, neo-barbarian landscape), 'Les Carabiniers' (absurdist war film with offhand atrocities) and 'Contempt' (contentious filmmaking by the sea, with ranting producer, exasperated actress, and pornographic dialogue). For Ever Mozart mixes fast-paced intellectual vaudeville with graceful philosophical reflections and startling moments of quiet beauty that pierce through the rapid-fire barrage of quotation and gunfire.

Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price for the Blu-ray have not been announced yet.
