Au hasard Balthazar 06/12/18

The Criterion Collection

Reviewer Charlie Largent plumbs the cinematic depths of Robert Bresson’s emotionally devastating masterpiece, in which an inoffensive beast of burden carries the sins of humanity. With non-professional actors and simple camerawork, Bresson expresses the mystery of life in a world devoid of moral justice. It’s a religious movie without a single sermon. Does a simple animal share in God’s grace? With Anne Wiazemsky. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
