Three rascals, two men and one woman (the luminous ) enjoy their days bounding about town until they decide to commit a robbery. Jean-Luc Godard continues his rebellion against conventional narrative storytelling, here creating a moderately enjoyable but mostly pointless exercise in frolic. Karina is the best thing about it, though some of the sequences, like when the trio run through Louvre as fast as they can to beat the world record, are charming. The original French title, Bande A Part, is where Quentin Tarantino got his title for his record company.

The Criterion Collection:  #174
