Au Hasard Balthasar

by

Dir. Robert Bresson (1966).
Bringing together all Bresson’s ideas about acting, sound, and editing, as well as grace, redemption, and human nature, his heartbreaking and magnificent account of a donkey’s life and death in rural France is the supreme masterpiece by one of the greatest of 20th century filmmakers.
