Band of Outsiders (The Criterion Collection)

from the manufacturer

Two restless young men (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur) enlist the object of their desire (Anna Karina) to help them commit a robbery--in her own home. French New Wave pioneer Jean-Luc Godard takes to the streets of Paris to re-imagine the gangster genre, spinning an audacious yarn thats at once sentimental and insouciant, romantic and melancholy

from via

Described by its maker, Jean-Luc Godard, as Alice in Wonderland meets Franz Kafka, this 1964 film noir stars Anna Karina as a naive woman who takes up with couple of would-be bad guys (Claude Brasseur, Sami Frey) in a disastrous effort to rob her aunt of a fortune. Along the way, the motley group joins the Godardian (and Hollywood gangster) tradition of characters who walk a line between reality and invention, in this case distracting themselves by running around the Louvre, taking a stab at learning English, stumbling through some dance steps, and reenacting the death of Billy the Kid. A uniquely spontaneous work in Godards canon, Band of Outsiders also continues the Brechtian strain in the directors merged relationship with Karina, his then-wife and artistic muse. Yet it is also more buoyantly unpredictable in its sense of romantic doom than any of the directors movies since his seminal debut, Breathless (also a gangster film, not coincidentally).
