Godard divides his film into three kingdoms, using Dante's "The Divine Comedy" as his structure. First there's Hell, with a montage showing war and genocide throughout history. Next is the longest section, Purgatory, set in Sarajevo and featuring Godard at a literary conference where we meet Israeli journalist Judith (Adler), and Olga (Dieu), a Russian Jew now living in Israel, and the theme is reconciliation and sacrifice. Then we get to Heaven, which again features Olga under very different circumstances. If you're a Godard fan, you'll know what strangeness you're getting into: others beware. French with subtitles.
