1959. France. Dir: Robert Bresson. With Martin LaSalle, Marika Green. 75 min.
A lonely amateur pickpocket turns to theft full-time, despite recurring threats from law enforcement and his increasing alienation from society. With an austere visual logic, master formalist Bresson creates one of his most accomplished and provocative works, a compelling character piece that raises questions about morality, law, and self-expression.
