Mouchette (1967)

A young girl living in the French countryside suffers constant indignities at the hand of alcoholism and her fellow man.


Robert Bresson's characters are very very interesting. On the surface, they are just ordinary. But, once you let yourself get absorbed into the milieu, you may find them fascinating and haunting at the same time. One of my most favorite auteurs.

I just wanted to hug Mouchette and say everything will be fine… such a heartbreaking film, I loved it.

Fascinating movie. Didn't have adequate subtitles in the version I saw but the cinematic language of Bresson still got through each scene in a beautiful and at the same time awful way.
