Bande à Part
The soundtrack that marries with the images, the way that only Jean Luc Godard edits, the Joie de vivre and the vibrancy of Karina's character, Odile, swinging her bag as she skips down the lane.
Bande a part epitomises la nouvelle vague, though it remains in a league of it's own. The dance scene in the bar, apparently and by no means a comparision, inspired Tarantino's Uma Thurman/John Travolta dance in Pulp Ficiton.
