:: Bande a part (Band Of Outsiders)

Bande à part (Band of Outsiders) is director Jean-Luc Godard’s tale of disaffected youth in suburban Paris. It features a beautiful girl Odile (Anna Karina - Godard’s real-life partner), who is involved in the crime of committing a robbery with fellow students Arthur (Claude Brasseur) and Franz (Sami Frey). Without such experience they fancied themselves to be desperate crims. When alerted to the fact that a boarder in Odile's place has money stashed away at the house, the guys look for a way of grabbign the cash. The movie becomes somewhat of a romp in ther American 40s/50s style.

This is one of Jean-Luc Godard's most accessible and most enjoyable films. It is spirited early 60's New Wave in how he contravenes movie convention, and not so abstract like he became a few years later.

Amongst the extras is “Images Apart” - commentary on parts of ‘Bande a part’ by Rolando Caputo, lecturer at Cinema Studies at Melbourne's La Trobe University.
