More and more I'm beginning to like Robert Bresson. Mouchette, like most of his films, is hard to grasp because it's a human story told very coldly and methodically with stiff performances and simplified storytelling, but it's worth engaging on its own terms. It's a shade darker and more intense than a lot of Bresson's work, and the plot and characters are more complex, in many ways making it a more compelling watch. It's probably as dreary and heartbreaking as anything else, as well.

Very good, creating a palpable feeling of desperation, but I find myself having a lot of trouble connecting with Bresson's films as much as I'd like to. Hopefully one day I shall...

Heartbreakingly depressing yet completely enthralling. Bresson's style fits the film's subject matter incredibly well.

Bresson is attentive and almost as immobile as the sorrow itself, in his depiction of (indefinable, but intelligible) human grief.

Bresson is a master, and this is the film I regard as his most perfect. I love the way he makes his characters seem dead-pan and worn out (by actually wearing them out, doing hundreds of takes) and at the same time causing the audience to invest in them.

A testament to Bresson's mastery of silence. He shoots in whispers and draws the viewer in close to the bleak title character, walled in as she is by a host of Gazes. Watch it, just not while you're in a bad mood.

Bresson's stark technique magnifies his lead's anguish and in stripping cinema of it's power of maniupulation, Mouchette exposes the cruel, taboo core of a patriachal society.

What? I can't believe how painfully dull this was. Even at a blissfully short 78 minutes I can't remember ever being so bored during a film. It never gave me any reason to care. And why was every single sound effect on the soundtrack so awfully loud and noisy? I honestly don't see a single redeeming feature in this film. What is so impressive here? It's average film making, with a dull story. A story which I've pretty much seen done better several other times.

The darkest Bresson I've seen, which says plenty. Few characters lead lives of such destitution and misery as Mouchette does, and yet her stoic demeanor scarcely betrays her suffering, with only the tears that run down her unblinking face as evidence. (Plus the occasional mild act of defiance, rare by Bresson standards.) Bresson's nighttime photography in the woods is really incredible.

Pretty decent. Bresson's method of underacting is particularly apparent here, and creates a very interesting effect against the backdrop of a bleak script. Bernanos is not a great writer - Diary of a Country Priest was kind of banter - but here he's more restrained and focused.

There's still a couple of Bressons I haven't seen yet, but this one is definitely the darkest so far. Even darker than Une Femme Douce, with which it shares certain themes (also Balthazar, and I got kind of a 400 Blows vibe from it as well). The common Bresson elements are all here: under-acting, attention to physicality, careful framing. I liked it, but it was mighty depressing. Like L'Argent, I think it will grow on me more if I watch it again.

Least favorite Bresson film so far; simply far too one-note and dull. Look to Balthazar instead, which says the same things but with much more subtlety and depth.

I greatly enjoy Bresson's minimalist approach and it works especially well here. The sparsity of the text helps keep our focus on the mood and atmosphere. That mood is, of course, relentlessly downbeat. That's to be expected from Bresson, but unlike with his other features, here it come across as somewhat forced and unnatural. It's still a damn fine movie with a very sympathetic lead.
