Synopsis
An allegorical , semi-documentary cine-essay that is a meditation on the history, culture, philosophy and economics of modern Europe. Described by Godard as ‘a symphony in three movements’:
THINGS SUCH AS - A Mediterranean cruise. Numerous conversations, in numerous languages, between the passengers, almost all of whom are on holiday...

OUR EUROPE - At night, a sister and her younger brother have summoned their parents to appear before the court of their childhood. The children demand serious explanations of the themes of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.

OUR HUMANITIES - Visits to six sites of true or false myths: Egypt, Palestine, Odessa, Hellas, Naples and Barcelona.
