Typical Bresson reaction from me; good, but unremarkable. I did feel for the titular character, but I don't know, I just didn't get into it. Maybe I have to be in the precise right mood to love rather than just admire a Bresson.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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?)

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.
