Drama, Historical Drama
Perhaps the most extreme instance of Robert Bresson's dedramatizing technique, exercised here in a rigorous treatment of its subject that couldn't be further from Dreyer's handling of the same subject. It's been more than a quarter of a century since I've seen this spare, elliptical work (1962), so it would be unfair to make a judgment, but as one of the most infrequently screened works of one of the greatest living filmmakers, I'm sure it warrants a look. In French with subtitles.
