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.

Gestures, aggressive gestures. From a friendly whiplash contest to hostile exposure. If you give it out you're going to get it, if you don't you'll get it more. Everyone wanting compassion in return for abuse. It's a sad film, possibly the saddest damn thing I've every seen, but it's honest and dark. Mouchette's perception seems to rely on you're own understanding, and it's enthralling. She's angry, but what can she do. Empathy seems a slight, and a slight cuts deep against misery. Hope is dead.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Using little dialogue and relying heavily on his typically elliptical editing and intrusive sound, Bresson creates yet another stunning portrait of a life in turmoil. The tragedy of her life is heavy, yet in Mouchette we cannot escape the reality of grace: the ending music, along with a couple of brief glimmers during the film, complicate the tragedy in a productive, and even hopeful, fashion. When nothing good is left in her life, mercy still finds Mouchette.

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.

An emotional sledgehammer. The use of fake tears and the ending scene seem however a little over the top.

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

I was expecting a female version of The 400 Blows (yet even more bleak and depressing), but this film keeps deviating from its central character with a bunch of uninteresting sub-plots and characters. It has its moments though, like the rather visual ending (though what was up with that time-ramping?)

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.

I have trouble connecting with many of Bresson's films. Although I often feel like I don't really get what he's going for, I continue to explore his filmography, drawn back to it by his unique style. Content-wise, I found this one sort of dull.
