the heaviness of the dialogue is balanced by Jany Holt's superbly understated performance as the prisoner -- a performance that looks forward to the invisible acting style of Bresson's mature work.

Robert Bresson's first feature, Les Anges du péché is a fascinating film, both intrinsically and in its relation to the rest of Bresson's oeuvre.

Robert Bresson's first full-length feature is an auspicious minimalist one.
