No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
One of the most astonishing film debuts ever, made while France was still under Nazi occupation.
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.
The two-way street between convent and prison, the ideal place for Robert Bresson to found his themes and images
Concerns a nun, Faure, who becomes obsessed with saving the soul of a woman convict.
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.
