Add to basket MOUCHETTE


Following Au Hasard Balthazar, Robert Bresson's Mouchette is the heartbreaking story of an alienated teenage girl whose life is mired in desolation and brutality. A metaphor for wider social conflict and alienation, Bresson said of the film: "Mouchette offers evidence of misery and cruelty. She is found everywhere: wars, concentration camps, tortures, assassinations." Neglected by her terminally ill mother and her abusive, alcoholic father, Mouchette's chance encounter with a local hunter sets her on a downward spiral that can only end in tragedy.
Inexorable, brutal and punishing, Mouchette is the work of a world-class filmmaker in his prime, and was nominated for the Palme d'Or, and the winner of both the OCIC Award at 1967 Cannes Film Festival and the Pasinetti Award for Best Film at the 1967 Venice Film Festival.
