SYNOPSIS

‘Godard’s joyous realisation of the ‘girl and a gun’ theory follows three students (Anna Karina, Sami Frey, Claude Brasseur) killing time and playing at crime. Transcending its noir genre with endless superb vignettes — the mad dash through the Louvre, the dance sequence, both paid homage to by Bernardo Bertolucci and Hal Hartley in recent years — the film features crisp photography by Raoul Coutard and a memorably jazzy score by Michel Legrand.’ Melbourne Cinémathèque
