Lang PP New York YR 2006 SN 0820478261 9780820478265 AB "Robert Bresson (1901-1999), one of the most original filmmakers in the history of cinema, adapted two novels by Georges Bernanos (1888-1948), Journal d'un cure de campagne and Nouvelle Histoire de Mouchette. The Catholic novelist Bernanos and the spiritual filmmaker Bresson, each in his own way, articulate grace and redemption through the suffering and death of their heroes/heroines. As a result, the reader and the spectator come to sense the presence of God in all four works. Bresson's techniques are presented and analyzed, as well as his later move to films without grace and redemption."--Jacket.
