Mouchette

The wretched existence of a poor peasant girl makes for a profoundly moving viewing experience.

Image from Mouchette

France 1966
Dir Robert Bresson
With Nadine Nortier, Marie Cardinal, Paul Hébert
82min
35mm
English subtitles

Robert Bresson’s most direct film is also one of his most profoundly affecting. It depicts, simply and without sentimentality, the wretched existence of a poor peasant girl in rural France who toils for her ailing mother, suffers the neglect of her father, is ostracised at school, and worse. Bresson’s austere direction is unflinching in its cool, clear-eyed yet compassionate assessment of the effects of human cruelty.
