one of the most efficient films ever, 22 December 2005
Author: s-andrews78 from United Kingdom

Bresson's last film is one of his best. He leaves no room for anything extra. There are no more dissolves, no more music (just his brilliant soundtrack). He moves through so many many facets of society so quickly, efficiently and daringly. Today's filmmakers should learn a lesson with their 2 hour films which never get to the point.

You will never forget the car chase scene, where he as usual builds so much through the soundtrack. And the dog, roaming from room to room in a pinnacle scene is revolutionary.

Money corrupts, then and now, and his attack on french society was maybe another reason he was never given funding for his films.

Bresson's ability to show humanity, surprise, horror and complexity reminds of his hero Doestovesky and in this case Tolstoy.

The ending, the final scene and shot, pierces your soul.
