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.

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

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.

There's something vaguely unnerving about Bresson's minimalistic style. There's very little dialogue, the characters act like robots, and his approach to the story is marked by such austerity and detachment that the end result is at times almost surreal. Contrary to what is often said about Bresson's fairness to the audience, I think Mouchette is somewhat manipulative in the way it piles on the misery and suffering for its protagonist, but the movie is good enough for me to forgive that.

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

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.

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?)

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 is one of the masters when it comes to highlighting the horrors of the mundane, joyless, unobserved life.
