Robert Bresson plumbed great reservoirs of feeling with Mouchette, one of the most searing portraits of human desperation ever put on film. Forced to take care of her baby brother in the stead of her dying mother and absent, alcoholic father, the teenaged Mouchette seeks solace in nature and daily routine, a respite from her economic and pubescent turmoil. An essential work of French filmmaking, Bresson's hugely empathetic drama elevates its trapped protagonist into one of the cinema's great tragic figures.
