Drama
This 1966 film is probably the most punishing and intense of Robert Bresson's studies of modern martyrdom, a story of a teenage peasant girl whose experiences of the world lead her, irresistibly, to suicide. If you don't know Bresson's work, this isn't the place to start (you may never go back), but it's a remarkable film: dark, compressed, shattering. Nadine Nortier heads a nonprofessional cast; adapted from a work by Georges Bernanos. In French with subtitles.
