Movie Summary
One of pioneering director Jean-Luc Godards most accessible films is this French spin on Dolores Hitchens novel Fools Gold. It tells the tale of three disaffected youths who plan a burglary, leading to deadly results. The alienated young trio is marvelous, particularly Anna Karina, and the early scenes of their clearly overdeveloped fantasy lives are splendidly handled. Something of a companion piece to Godards classic └ Bout de Souffle, its young characters have the same odd mixture of fatalism and starry-eyed na´vetÚ that is, by turns, appealing and tragic. Trivia buffs should note that the film gave its name to Quentin Tarantinos production company (A Band Apart), and several of its scenes are echoed in his Pulp Fiction. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide
