Comments

simple and touching This is a masterpiece by Robert Bresson, adapted from the excellent novel by Georges Bernanos. The story is about faith, sin, and loneliness - whether you're a believer or not, it doesn't matter. I'm not a religious person myself but the themes in this movie are universal, and will speak to anyone. Both technically and thematically excellent, I cannot recommend this film enough. It's, by the way, the n°1 film of the great russian director Andrei Tarkovski.
