    "...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

  4. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

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

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

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

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

    Grand film existentiel dont l'austérité amplifie le tragique.

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

    Un chef d'oeuvre! Construite avec du silence et des petits bruits, une tension minimaliste monte imperceptiblement tout le long de ce film extraordinaire qui parle du pouvoir de la persistance. Vive Bresson!

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

    Bresson is not interested in big emotions or catharsis (he doesn't even mind telling us the end of the film in the title) but rather drawn to details and method, and so he crafts a meticulous and tremendously absorbing classic that depicts each step taken by the protagonist to reach his objective. http://www.filmotrope.com

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

    A hauntingly beautiful, existentialist character study about a man who has nothing to lose - and everything. Its minimalistic camera work creates a mood of tension as well as scarce moments of hope for these Résistance fighters in a Nazi prison, who - through the film's searing realism - could be each and everyone of us, its viewers.

  22. azoulay's rating of the film A Man Escaped

    Le discours de la méthode selon Bresson. Les actes sont décrits comme une machinerie ineluctable pour recouvrer la liberté. Cette quête prend la dimension d'une évidence absolue. La voix du récitant en nous envoutant nous rassure oui la liberté se trouve dans la poussière du bois que des mains obstinée ont rongé.Une fois encore Bresson est Magistral
