Thoughts on thoughts and images of beautiful things

Dancing in cafes

This scene from Jean-Luc Godard‘s Band of Outsiders is one of my favorite scenes in all of film. Ana Karina is classically stunning as usual and the dance number is infectious and longs to be mimicked. While there is a voice-over describing what the characters are thinking, the dancing itself doesn’t really serve any purpose in the film’s narrative. It is simply there for its own sake and for the audience to take pleasure in, which is what makes it so great.
