For Ever Mozart

(France/Switzerland, 1996, 84 minutes)

An unemployed philosophy teacher decides to head to war-torn Sarajevo to perform a Musset play there, while her aging film director father is hired by an unscrupulous producer to direct a film called “The Fatal Bolero”. Subtitled 36 Characters in Search of a Plot, this is a provocative meditation on culture that eschews linear narrative in favor of pay-as-you-go plotting and surreal satire; despite its many thought-provoking moments, strictly for fans of the director.
