Mostly a discussion of Bernanos's two different Mouchettes: Sous le soleil de satan and Nouvelle histoire de Mouchette. Rhode discusses it in terms of paradox and purification, Bresson's detailed documentation of the real, and his fascination with formalist constructions. He concludes that Bresson measures the present "against the highest intellectual and moral standards of tie 18th century," and therefore "works in a void. Martin , 'Im Wettbewerb: 'Mouchette'', Filmkritik 11, no.

Milne, Tom , 'Mouchette', Sight and Sound 37, no. Review that describes the film as a "thinner experience" after the complexities of Au hasard, Balthazar.

Mouchette and Marie, however, are said to mark a new kind of character for Bresson, one who is solitary not by choice, but by imposition. This in turn marks a "shifting of the emphasis from the malleability of the Christian soul to the implacable indifference of the Christian world. Petrie, Graham , 'Mouchette', Film Quarterly 22, no.

Petrie points out the "rhythmic and visual bases" of the film that "act as a controlling counterbalance to the emotions contained in the material. Extensive quotes from the book illustrate Bresson's fidelity to its atmosphere and aesthetic, but the author feels that Bresson misses the depth of Bernanos's portrait of Mouchette by concentrating arbitrarily on the events and things that surround her.

Review of Une Femme douce in which the author meditates on his lack of sympathy with the fixed notions of Bresson's cinema. Ayfre describes Bresson's universe as 'one of "unfailing unity," then discusses the various poles of Bresson's work: the balance of abstraction and reality achieved through the use of concrete detail; the shift between film from character to person, as Bresson increasingly leaves our knowledge of his characters short of a full portrayal; the movement from loneliness to communication, a process Bresson explores graphically through his use of space and time; and the movement from immanence to transcendence, which Bresson portrays through paradox, death, and the "inexpressiveness of faces.

After an introduction disparaging the distortions of criticism that wrap a film up "too neatly," Barr inaccurately describes the film and interprets it at length. The essay attempts to unite the film through the concepts of will and responsibility, and eventually concludes that it is "profoundly ambivalent. Mouchette is described as a "dialectic between involvement in the world and withdrawal from it. Baud suggests that between Ayfre and Bresson there is a "spontaneous and total sympathy" that is expressed in their fascination with the questions of grace and free will.

Nahun, A. A poetic essay that defies summary, but here are some hints of its richness: Oudart examines Bresson's attempt to create "a discourse totally transitive. From this long and sketchy introduction, Oudart moves to a Freudian-inspired discussion of Une Femme douce , a film in which "it is obvious that, for Bresson, nothing has weight.

No more subjective images, intentional or not, and no more obsessive right angles. Bresson is through with the eroticism of a point of view. It is not the desire that is the problem for Bresson's characters, but love. How can there be truth in their relationship, if in their communication, an Identity is not created by the signs exchanged? Still, Bresson asks, how can representation be avoided? What must be inscribed in the film to ensure the truth? And thus, he marks this otherwise "anonymous film," and justifies this "fantastic obliteration, this editing that could not create anything.

Oudart is a formidably dense theorist, and Bresson has been a persistent inspiration to him see index. By using repeated shot-reverse shots and an oblique angle of framing "frankly admitted and used as a system" that results in the character's glance being imperfectly subtended, Bresson reserves, that is, never visibly defines -- part of the space of the absent.
