the poetry of people
french filmmaker robert bresson had a very clear vision. he carefully cast the roles and rehearsed the actors till they slipped free from all pretense to be anything other than the voice and movement required to tell the story. my first viewing of a bresson film has left me marveling at his simplicity which is very powerful. not many films have me shaking my head.
