Description June 1944, France is still under the German occupation. The writer and communist Robert Antelme, major figure of the Resistance, is arrested and deported. His young wife Marguerite Duras, writer and resistant, is torn by the anguish of not having news of her and her secret affair with her comrade Dyonis. She meets a French agent working at the Gestapo, Pierre Rabier, and, ready to do anything to find her husband, puts himself to the test of an ambiguous relationship with this troubled man, only to be able to help him. The end of the war and the return of the camps announce to Marguerite Duras the beginning of an unbearable wait, a slow and silent agony in the midst of the chaos of the Liberation of Paris.

Frenchmen and Frenchwomen have been living and dying with the Cinque Ports(colonies) and the Porte de Montparnasse since before the French Revolution. The time is 2041. The French colonial administration has returned, and French(on the southern side) and Abenante(on the northern side) troops are fighting each other for control of the ports. The two sides, an old navy captain and his lieutenant, have different plans, and the old captain and his lieutenant lose in an effort to bring in a submarine. And, after his plan is defeated, he refuses to surrender the cinque ports, and begins an attempt to send more troops back to France to reinforce the French troops. The war ends with a French surrender. But, this is not all that is true. The French have a good reason to do this. They are tired of their colonies being run by the Abenante. The Captain and his lieutenant want to take control of the ports back from the Abenante, and as an apology, they offer to surrender the ports. To do this, they need to make a new code. The code is that, all ships will pass through Montparnasse, and the ships will only be able to do so if they are Abenante ships. Any ship that is not Abenante ships will be destroyed. This leads to a battle on the port docks. This is where we learn that the old navy captain is looking for a new code, and to find a new code he needs to bring in new troops to reinforce the new army. He needs a fresh army, and it is an old army. So he sends back in new recruits. And, after the old navy recruits defeat the new recruits and conquer the old recruits, they decide to end the war and to surrender the cinque ports to the Abenante. This is the story of a soldier, and it is a great one. It is a story about loyalty, loyalty to one's country, and the good and the bad, the luck and the luck, the crew and the crew, the free men and the slaves, and the fate of humanity.

The premise is actually a fairly smart idea: modern technology allows people to be more invisible than they would be for example, so the question is whether to use this to improve our lot in life or to kill those who hinder us? Despite its slowness it doesn't lack ambition: this is an honest, intriguing and stylish movie about our post-modern life and its hidden side effects. If you're not keen to watch some guy going about his business as a high-tech, semi-criminal, hi-tech slacker, you may have trouble with this movie: the characters are too well developed for that. The problem lies in the nature of the movie: it's actually a bit of a mess. In the last thirty minutes or so, the pace of the movie becomes rather dull. It's like watching two hours of tired documentary footage on a boring day, with the music replaced by some by-the-numbers symphonic soundtrack. Despite its title, there's not much musical value, which I guess is to be expected given the fact that the movie deals with the making of an extremely simple piece of equipment. The director is actually very progressive, and has a lot of interesting ideas in store for us. The problem is that he makes the same mistakes as many other movies with the same genre: he over-explains things, without ever actually explaining why or what is going on in the movie. For example, a few days before the movie, the two characters meet an inmate who is about to be executed. The reason he's about to be executed is, in a simple and obvious way, explained away. You will also find yourself wondering who is responsible for killing this guy. He wasn't, of course, his cell mate, and the guy isn't going to be executed. Then, there's another important piece of the puzzle: the guy, who killed the guy the first time, is suddenly on the run from the cops. The guy was in the middle of a conversation with another guy when he was murdered, but this other guy, with whom he was on the phone, wasn't on the run. It's entirely unclear what this means. Was he aware of his having killed a guy? Or was he just dumb enough to think that he was in the right in killing the guy? How do we explain this? These are the kind of questions that arise as a result of the director's inability to put the pieces together. For all that, this movie is still an intriguing, entertaining and intelligent one; the director manages to fit a lot of interesting themes into the screenplay and its message is clear and consistent. Overall, this movie is definitely worth seeing if you're an avid follower of the director's work, or if you want to spend some time with a movie that is not full of dull dialog and obvious explanations. 7/10

French director Michelangelo Antonioni's filmography is full of philosophical and political questions. In this film, Antonioni questions the nature of truth, justice, and morality. Although this is a black and white film, Antonioni does not shy away from being a little preachy at times. The film is based on the autobiographical novel by Jean de la Fontaine, "La Douleur", which is a poetic biography of the founder of the Leopoldos, Leopoldo Fagile. The film opens with the birth of Fagile's daughter and how he teaches her to use her body in a manner to better the world. This is followed by a scene of Fagile and his wife who is having an affair. Fagile seems to be uninterested in his wife and as such does not object to his wife's affair. This is all the more troubling when you realize that Fagile has an affair with a prostitute. The film then shifts gears to reveal the secret of Fagile's affairs, which is revealed in the last scene. The reason for this is because the prostitute is one of Fagile's students. Fagile takes pleasure in the knowledge of her and soon begins to marry her. Antonioni's film is interesting because it is not a straightforward drama. It is not a film that is melodramatic, nor is it a film that is slow. The film is also very philosophical, but it is not a film that asks us to take a side or make us think. The film does not answer the question of the nature of truth, justice, and morality. In fact, the film is not really about Fagile's life, but rather it is about the nature of truth and the nature of the film. The film is a commentary on the nature of truth and the nature of the film.
