"Part poetry, part journalism, part philosophy, master filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard's NOTRE MUSIQUE is a witty and lyrical reflection on war through the ages. The film is structured into three Dantean Kingdoms: Hell, Purgatory and Heaven. The journey begins in Hell (represented by modern war) and then moves to Purgatory (set in Sarajevo). 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 Jewish women, one drawn to the light and one drawn towards darkness"--Container

He has so far published fourteen volumes of poetry, the first of which, Olive Leaves, appeared in 1964, and the latest, Eleven Planets, in 1993.
