MOTM/LAMBCAST #85: BANDE A PARTE

by

Are you ready to get your Nouvelle Vague on? We take a gander at Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 film Bande à parte for the MOTM this time out.

For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:

“A triangle: Franz, Arthur, and Odile. Franz, a young man with Alain Delon good looks, has met Odile in an English class. She lives in Joinville with wealthy benefactors and has mentioned to Franz that Mr. Stolz keeps a pile of 10,000 franc notes unlocked in his room. Franz tells his friend Arthur, a swarthy guy whose shady uncle is pressing him for money. Arthur and Franz, who mimic American movie tough guys, case Odile’s house, pressure her to assist them with a burglary, and make passes at her as well. She’s alternately compliant and distressed. Will they pull off the heist? “

First up, the links! Thanks to all of the LAMBs that sent in their posts for this edition of the MOTM.

It’s also time to vote on next month’s movie. I’ve included many of the choices from last month, but swapped a few out to keep it interesting. You have one week to vote.
