Bande a Part


aka: Band of Outsiders
France 1964, 95 minutes
Dir. Jean-Luc Godard
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Classics / Gangsters

Topics: Nouvelle Vague.


Aroview: One of the dir.’s more accessible films follows the carefree criminal adventures of Anna Karina, Claude Brasseur and Sami Frey, while still managing to pack in the references to Kafka, Rimbaud, Lewis Carroll and of course, Hollywood. Distinctly memorable, due to a ‘make-believe’ atmosphere all its own.
