BANDE Ã PART
A film Jean-Luc Godard
Gleefully putting into practice D W Griffith's maxim that all you need to make a film is a girl and a gun , bande ã part is Goddard's playful tribute to the Hollywood pulp crime movies of the forties, executed with typically Gallic cool.
Franz and Arthur, a couple of streetwise chancers, team up with the shy Odile (a beguiling performance from Anna Karina) to plan a robbery. As the trio of misfits roams the cafés of suburban Paris, does a lightning tour of the Louvre, and play-acts shoot-outs, the suspicion grows that this is one heist that is not going to go according to plan.
With superb photography by Raoul Coutard, music by Michel Legrand and one of the most exhilarating dance sequences in film, bande ã part is about about as enjoyable as cinema gets . Time Out.
A-Z Guide including a specially commissioned video interview with Anna Karina, on-set footage, Quentin Tarantino on the dance sequence and Pulp Fiction, and commentary by Dr Roland François Lack, lecturer in the Department of French at University College London.
Plus an interview with cinematographer Raoul Coutard, original theatrical trailer and director's biography
