Regarded by many as a masterpiece, Bresson’s film tells the story of a young man living in Paris who desires more from life than the glib, superficial truths and material things that are on offer to him. He reaches out to his friends and psychiatrist to provide him with the great answers in life. But his spiritual deliverance remains beyond his grasp until he reaches a bizarre arrangement with a fellow drifter. Shot in his signature spare style, Bresson’s penultimate work is as visionary, hypnotic and enduring as any of the films in his truly remarkable oeuvre.
