Robert Bresson (1907-)

Sierra Club


My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.

Painter and filmaker. Bresson made his first film Les Anges du Peche (1943) after spending more than a year as a German POW during World War II. He created a unique minimalist style.

His critics regard him as one of the greatest artists in the history of the cinema. He retired in the 1980s, after failing to raise the money for a long-planned adaptation of the Book of Genesis. [Adapted from IMDb]
