  1. Genadijus L.'s rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Captivating storytelling and integral aestetic by Robert Bresson and breathtaking turn (almost like an apparition) by the unforgetable François Leterrier playing the story of desperate lieutenant Fontaine. One of the most memorable classic cinema views this year!

  2. abunchoffilms's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    earthly and elemental, but more of an exercise in the metaphysical. One of the best uses of sound ever to be put to celluloid period.

  3. Richard Tines's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Bresson always oozes empathy, and made the prison escape genre actually interesting to me... Keeps you on your toes till the very end with his other complementary strength, suspense... shows even a wooden door can be an effective character....

  4. Ben Nash's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Some of the best sound design in all of cinemadom.

  5. Naoya Kugimiya's rating of the film A Man Escaped

  6. hubertguillaud's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Il n'est pas si simple d'être courageux, rappelle Robert Bresson dans ce film ultra-minimaliste, épuré, où tout est suggéré. Une succession de plans taillés au cordeau suffisent à graver l'inflexibilité de la détermination. Une morne voix-off suffit à créer de l'empathie. L'austérité même suffit à créer le suspens. Bref, parfaitement dépouillé et magistral.

  8. Pelin Şahin's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    "...haydutların öldüreceği, gece ormanda kesecekleri halde hala umutla bağıran, yalvaran insanlara rastlanır. oysa burada(idam) ölümü on kat daha kolaylaştıracak son umudu yıkıyorlar. ortada bir karar vardır, kaçma, kurtulma umudu yok olmuştur. hiç bir şey yapamamanın, umutsuzluğun acısı da her acıdan daha güçlüdür." Dostoyevski,Budala

  10. Cindy's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    still think back to this years after the first watch. oddly fitting that the lead actor resembles ian curtis...calls to mind also rilke's poem "the panther". bresson arrested - in deceptively minimalist strokes - the disquietude in condemnation and rapture in escape

  11. Luca Angelini's rating of the film A Man Escaped

  12. captainfez's rating of the film A Man Escaped

  13. tintinmugshot's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    The way that Bresson builds up the tension and keep it until the end is a work of a master, with minimal resources like dialogues, lack of music and scenarios, giving space to the regular and sincere sounds of a prison's life. One of the best movies ever made, visceral, rough, breathing. If this is not pure cinema, I don't know what it is.

  14. VincentVendetta's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    As much as I admired Bresson theory through the years, his distaste for simple filmed theatre, I always wondered: why does his characters talk so much? And then I realized: a theory without humanity is not worth living in. Fontaine fights against the silence ("Pas parler!"), he fights against the limits of the cell, he fights to keep his identity. In the end, he fights to leave the frame, to live away from our view.

  15. Lex Lucas's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Bresson's minimalist action and absolute control give this story a transcendantal glow on both inner and physical senses. We feel every steps in the character's evasion, every obstacles and every danger with a perfect rythm.

  16. Galou's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    L'histoire d'un homme qui s'échappe. Presque une évasion documentaire, mais où on ne retrouve pas la poésie d'un Pickpocket.

  17. Sol Petchorine's rating of the film A Man Escaped

  18. catherine carrot's rating of the film A Man Escaped

  19. cyrildruesne's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    À voir et revoir. Avec le père du réalisateur du Transporteur dans le rôle titre, et oui.

  20. Didonne's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Une oeuvre magnifique. Un au-delà de l'évasion comme le dit son titre : le vent souffle où il veut.

  21. RoRoRoro's rating of the film A Man Escaped

  22. CaÏn Kââ's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    La joie profonde de Mozart, la joie profonde de ce condamné à mort s'échappant – sans tambour ni trompette, avec la connivence de toute une prison, de messages passant de main en main. Omniprésence des mains aussi prolixes que les paroles, dans un monde sans caméras de surveillance, sous l'infinie attention de la caméra de Bresson.

  23. Ma-rewind's rating of the film A Man Escaped

  24. Pierre.F's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Grand film existentiel dont l'austérité amplifie le tragique.
