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

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.

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.

Depressed, hateful, all for good reason, Mouchette's life is a disaster. She goes beyond not liking the popular girls at her school; she waits for them when the school day ends and throws mud at them. But there is one brief scene where Mouchette is, if not happy, at least smiling: when she rides bumper cars. I’m not sure what is weirder, that her one moment of happiness comes via bumper cars, or that Bresson allowed his film to show two minutes of joy.

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?)

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.

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.

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

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.
