Trivia:
Odile refers to dancing at 'Mimi Pinson's'. 'Mimi Pinson' was a fictional character in a book by Alfred de Musset, 'Mademoiselle Mimi Pinson: Profil de grisette'. It is likely her name was appropriated for the name of a dance hall/ café. It has links to Odile's character in that Mimi Pinson was a grisette, a term used to define independent young women who were adventurous and lived only for moment.See more »

A great, great film, 25 December 2001
Author: The Narrator-15 from Sydney, Australia

Bande à part [A Band of Outsiders] is an extraordinarily influential film, maybe even more so than Breathless. It's themes of a generation lost are still relevant today, and many scenes have been copied by numerous filmmakers. Quentin Tarantino, for one, regards this as one of his all time favorite films, and it's not hard to see why, the cafeteria and dance scene were heavily borrowed for Pulp Fiction. Anna Karina is one of the most gorgeous actresses of all time. 9.5/10.
