Au hasard Balthazar
Dir. Robert Bresson
France-Sweden 1966 | Black & white | 91 mins | Cert PG
Cast: Anne Wiazemsky, Walter Green
A typically Bressonian parable: poetic, moving, and, despite its cool restraint, visually superb. The mistreatment of a donkey is captured in his daily grind of giving rides, moving agricultural machinery and being beaten or stroked, depending on the mood of the owner of the time. A study on saintliness and a sister piece to Bresson’s Mouchette.
