"The Outsiders", Godard's playful reimagining of the Hollywood crime films of the 1940s, follows young misfits Franz (Sami Frey), Arthur (Claude Brasseur) and Odile (Anna Karina) as their plan to burgle a rich old lady goes tragicomically wrong. Shot in just 25 days on the wintry streets of suburban Paris, "The Outsiders" remains one of Godard's most loved films and is often remembered for its exhilarating cafe dance sequence and famous race through the Louvre.
A-Z Guide including a specially commissioned video interview with Anna Karina, on-set footage, Quentin Tarantino on the dance sequence and Pulp Fiction, and commentary by Dr Roland-Francois Lack, lecturer in the Department of French at University College London

Let this New Wave wash over you
- The Outsiders review by PT
This is a classic French New Wave. Some beautiful set pieces, including the run through the Louvre, the cafe dance, and Anna Karina singing.
The story of a happless duo of wanna be gangsters who get Anna Karina on board.
For me the film belongs to Anna Karina, who is totally hypnotic every time she's on screen, whether it's a long take of her running to meet the duo behind the factory, or a close up study such as the aforementioned singing. Pure class.
