  1. EdieEmm's rating of the film Ars

    The stark visuals of Bergman, the sensibilities of Bresson, and a wonderful dip into something like Von Trier before doubling back for a cleaner and less interesting end than I was hoping for. At 18 minutes, a beautiful, if ultimately rather straightforward, watch. 3.5

  2. msmichel's rating of the film Ars

    Demy tells an excellent story in the early short looking back on the life of a priest at Ars. The story of a man of god so severe that his own parish rises up against him but his own belief is strong enough to overcome. A work well worth visiting.

  3. Timbo of Boston's rating of the film Ars

    A lovely way t tell a story. Kind of inspirational in terms of storytelling. The man, however (if you ask me), was simply mentally ill.

  4. Buddy Love's rating of the film Ars

  5. John Baldwin's rating of the film Ars

    Very unexpected film from Demy. Might almost have been made by Bresson! It's both startling and amusing that Demy, the later auteur of Lola, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Young Girls of Rochefort, made a movie celebrating the life of a priest who condemned cabarets and dance parties as mortal sin!

  6. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Ars

    Am I crazy, or is that the same narrator from Pickpocket?

  7. Weston Campbell's rating of the film Ars

    Excellent camerawork and a captivating subject.

  8. Ariel Cobol's rating of the film Ars

    'and not available on DVD!' It actually is available on dvd through the Criterion Demy set...

  9. cherot's rating of the film Ars

    Une voix d'agneau, douce et naïve, raconte le périple de la foi chrétienne de Jean-Marie Baptiste Vianney, à Ars. Cette voix et l'oeil de la caméra font vivre le personnage dans l'enfermement démentiel de sa foi : des plans fixes; sur son logement, sur les objets de sa pénitence, sur ses trajets.. Lui contre le village, austère, sinistre et convaincu. Dans le ton de "journal d'un curé de campagne" de R. Bresson.!!

  10. Kamran's rating of the film Ars

    Exquisite camerawork in yet another exceptionally ascetic short by a young Demy, recalling most closely Bresson's Diary.. 83/100 - Great.
