[cert PG, 95 mins]

Bande a Part (The Outsiders) is Godard’s tribute to the Hollywood pulp crime movies of the Forties. Franz and Arthur, a couple of streetwise chancers, team up with the shy Odile (Anna Karina) to plan a robbery. As the trio of misfits roam the streets of Paris, the suspicion grows that this is one heist that is not going to go according to plan.
