Movie review Au Hasard Balthazar (1966) – A Poetic Masterpiece by Robert Bresson

Sometimes it’s not the tale but the art of telling it which makes it great. Au Hasard Balthazar, Robert Bresson’s pièce de résistance is an animal movie unlike any.

Movie review Au Hasard Balthazar

This motion picture evokes emotions lurking so deep that you never knew they existed. At times you wonder if you are watching the movie or if the movie is watching you. Balthazar causes you to get out from the comfort of your seat and shakes you up from inside. Every black and white sequence is a sheer cinematic joy, every scene, an ode. It leaves the viewer wanting more, an exclamation mark in movie making!

    1. Thanks Mahima:) Despite it’s greatness, Balthazard the movie, maintains a sleepy distance as if it doesn’t wants to be discovered. And yet whenever someone plays it, like a sonnet the symphony is there for all to see. Watch it soon!
