Behold, the scene that marks the end and the beginning of film itself.

Godard was my favorite filmmaker for a long time, and Bande was my favorite, the vid file didn't load but I'm guessing it was the cafe/dance scene? :beer:
I have the criterion release of Bande and Contempt (need to get Alphaville, A Bout de Souffle and a few others)--haven't watched Contempt yet.

Maybe you can see this. It's the compressed version.

"Bande Apart" is a great film, but for me "My Life to Live" is the more compelling of the two. The opening scene in the cafe where she rakes here soon to be ex-beau over the coals is brilliant, as is the theater scene with "The Passion Of Joan of Arc". That dance scene in "Bande Apart", by the way, was an expansion on a similar theme first featured in "My Life To Live".
Also note that Godard almost always incudes a brief nouvelle vague reference in his films. In "My Life To Live" it was a theater marque displaying "Jules Et Jim"--predating the break with Truffaut no doubt.
"Vivre sa vie" rules. :p
