Au Hasard Balthazar
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Robert Bresson, Robert Bresson
1966 / 95min / DCP
Jean-Luc Godard, never one to mince words, called it “the world in an hour and a half.” Even in a filmography as singularly perfect as Bresson’s, Au Hasard Balthazar, the story of a donkey passing through the hands of a number of (mostly malicious) human owners, stands apart. Exhibiting the placid, gentle temperament of a true, forbearing Christian throughout, Balthazar emerges as a shaggy saint, a martyr on four legs who bears silent witness to the thoughtless cruelty of man. “The supreme masterpiece by one of the greatest 20th-century filmmakers”—J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
Please note: This title will screen on DCP on Wednesday, April 26th.
