The original French title for Gentle Creature is Une Femme Douce. Both affectionate appellations refer to leading lady Dominique Sanda, a popular model of the 1960s, here making her film debut (Incredibly, she was chosen for the role by director Robert Bresson on the basis of her voice!) Sanda's first appearance is as a gorgeous corpse; she has committed suicide, and her pawnbroker husband (Guy Frangin) doesn't know why. It takes him nearly the entire movie to figure out what the audience has

Bresson's first film in colour, a wonderfully lucid adaptation of Dostoievsky's enigmatic short story.
The usual language of critical praise seems beside the point in discussing Bresson, but please understand that I mean this to be a rave review.
