bresson uses the ellipse so much that he subordinates the actual plot to meaninglessness, this movie didn't appeal me unlike his earlier works.

another great bresson, with this being his most emotionally involving and his most depressing (that i've seen).

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.

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.

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?)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
