Go To

Bande à part (Band of Outsiders) is a 1964 film by Jean-Luc Godard. It relates the story of the three small-time criminals (a girl, Odile, played by Anna Karina, and two guys, Franz and Arthur) who want to steal a sum of money from the stash in the country house of the girl's aunt.

Tropes à part

  • Last Breath Bullet: That's how Arthur dies. He shots his uncle several times. The latter is obviously mortally wounded but stays on his legs for several moments, then shoots Arthur only once and immediately falls down and dies. Arthur is also killed by this sole shot.
  • MacGuffin: The money hidden by Odile's aunt.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Madame Victoria, Odile's aunt who is gagged and tied and then is presumed to be dead by the band but still survives in the end.
  • The Oner: The scene where the characters are running across the Louvre to break the record of the quickest run throught the museum.
