Director: Robert Bresson, Robert Bresson
1959 / 76min / 35mm

Bresson’s incomparable story of crime and redemption follows Michel (Martin LaSalle), a young pickpocket who spends his days working the streets, subway cars, and train stations of Paris. As his compulsive pursuit of the thrill of stealing grows, however, so does his fear that his luck is about to run out. A cornerstone of the career of this most economical and profoundly spiritual of filmmakers, Pickpocket is an elegant, tautly choreographed, and deeply emotional study of humanity in all its mischief and grace, the work of a director at the full height of his powers.
