Happy, playful Godard is a marvel.

Godard brings so much innovation in each of his films. Beautiful.

The film is both gleefully unconventional and remarkably restrained. It's great fun.
Several iconic scenes with a brilliantly mediocre set of characters.
A beautiful young woman (the famous actress Anna Karina) meets two young men who convince her to help them rob her aunt. A surreal version of a Hollywood gangster movie set in 1960's Paris, Bande å Part contains wonderful dance scenes, whimsical and tighter thematic and visual construction, and a pervasive, faintly romantic feeling that is unlike the rest of Godard's work. There is a great, memorable moment where, just before committing the crime, the trio take some time off to view some of the Louvre's art collection, at high speed. A terrific, modern, melancoly movie. The film influenced on American director Quentin Tarantino who named his production company "A Band Apart".
