Aro Recommended Man Escaped, A


France 1956, 98 minutes, B/W
Dir. Robert Bresson
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Suspense/Crime, Classics / Prison


Aroview: Bresson's films are all extremely controlled in style: no suspense, no histrionics, flat acting, spare and simple camerawork, yet this is an exceptionally powerful and gripping escape film, as well as being a testament to the power of absolute faith (the theme of all Bresson's early films - the later ones are about despair), and a perfect, accesssible introduction to the work of one of the film art's most unique and important figures.
