By many measures Bresson was a minimalist, but as anyone who has sobbed through the struggles of Mouchette
or the death throes of Balthazar knows well, he strove for maximal effects, "thinking first and foremost of the end," as he put it, quoting Leonardo.
Kaethler uses Joseph Ratzinger's account of the intrinsically relational nature of the self as an exegetical tool for reading Bernanos's Mouchette
and the more-widely known Diary of a Country Priest.
(Bresson, 1967) una linda adolescente se suicida fuera de campo, pues solo oimos el ruido de su cuerpo al caer al agua.
Alem disso, se consideramos as obras do repertorio classico pre-existente utilizadas por Bresson em toda a sua filmografia, vemos um predominio do periodo barroco, como os trechos de Lully, em Pickpocket (1959), de Monteverdi, em Mouchette
(1967) e O diabo provavelmente (1977), de Purcell, em Uma mulher suave (1969), e de Bach, em O dinheiro (1983).

In the late 1960s, Bresson made two films--Au Hasard Balthazar (1966) and Mouchette
(1967)--that Price claims changed the filmmaker's concern with language and domination from relations between men to the relationship between man and animal.
He breaks through her defences, and guided by divine inspiration, he gains a crystal clear understanding of her sinful soul, which he communicates to Mouchette
in a charitable voice emphasising repentance and God's forgiveness (Bernanos 2001, 143).
Looking at a total of 11 films, including Diary of a Country Priest, Mouchette
, Lancelot du Lac, and The Devil Probably, Price shows how Robert Bresson's early style was a model for social resistance, and how, after 1968, his films were a series of reflections on the failure of the revolution in France.
(played by Nadine Nortier in her sole onscreen performance) is a sullen, sordid unremarkable poor young girl with no friends and a baby brother to take care of.
Beth Curran's new book on Bernanos and Bresson is a long-overdue project, providing valuable insights on both the novelistic and film versions of Journal d'un cure de campagne and Nouvelle histoire de Mouchette
There are other contributions exploring affinities between Bernanos and Kierkegaard, Conrad, Jean Sulivan, and Mohammed Dib: the last of these, by Pierrette Renard, is a particularly helpful parallel reading of Nouvelle histoire de Mouchette
and L'Infante maure.
La critica tiende a ubicar la tematica, la narrativa y el estilo visual de este par de hermanos realizadores a medio camino entre el britanico Ken Loach y el magistral Robert Bresson; asi, Rosetta, la historia de una joven que recurre al crimen para obtener un trabajo, unica manera de tener un lugar en la sociedad, seria la Mouchette
(Bresson) de los Dardenne; El nino, historia de toma de conciencia y camino a la redencion, su Pickpocket.
