Mouchette

Synopsis

A teenage girl faces life’s indignities—including an alcoholic father and a dying mother—with a noble, heartbreaking resolve. This deeply moving study of earthly suffering may be Bresson’s most emotionally devastating work, but he lets in a ray of light in the celebrated bumper cars sequence, one of the most sublime, purely pleasurable passages in all of the director’s cinema.
