Diary of a Country Priest

Dir. Robert Bresson (1951). The template for all of Bresson’s subsequent films, Diary of a Country Priest is characterized above all by a search for authenticity. Few artists since the Renaissance have so convincingly wed the aesthetic to the spiritual. The final shot makes its allegory absolutely apparent even as the protagonist’s last words—“All is grace”—suggest cinema itself is the holy sacrament.
