Adapted from a short story by Dostoevsky, Bresson’s first colour film charts a man’s attempts to discover what drove his wife to commit suicide by looking back at their past together. An account of existential solitude and the unintelligibility of other people, it benefits from a subtly nuanced performance by Sanda (making her film debut) and from an expressive use of blues and greens.
