Band of Outsiders

1964, Jean-Luc Godard


Bande à part (French pronunciation: ​[bɑ̃d a paʁ]) is a 1964 French New Wave film directed by Jean-Luc Godard. It was released as Band of Outsiders in North America; its French title derives from the phrase faire bande à part, which means "to do something apart from the group". The film is about three people who commit a robbery. It received positive critical reviews, and its dance scene has been referenced several times in popular culture.

The sole on-screen writing credit ("DOLORES HITCHENS ROMAN") does not specify that the film is based on the American mystery writer Dolores Hitchens' 1958 novel Fools' Gold, while Godard, in his on-screen credit ("JEANLUC CINEMA GODARD"), does not specify that it was he who adapted the book for the screen.
