75 mins – France 1959 – Subtitles – Dir: Robert Bresson
Starring: Martin LaSalle, Marika Green and Jean Pélégri
In one of Robert Bresson’s most admired, intriguing, and influential films, resolute drifter Michel spends his days learning the art of pickpocketing and targeting the unsuspecting citizens of 1950s Paris. Following his inevitable arrest (and almost immediate release) he begins to reflect on the morality of crime, spouting vague theories about exceptional individuals being above the law. Lost in another world, he rejects the support of his friends in favour of pickpocketing, and the only way he can seem to find a place for himself in society is to engineer a head-on collision with it.
