dionysus67's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

A unique film in the history of cinema that merges so effortlessly and truthfully materialism and idealism. Matter spiritualizes, spirot materialized is the metaphysic that transforms scenes like the one between Gérard and Marie in the 2CV, or the De Sadean glimpse with the demeaned nude Marie, into 'absolute' images -beyond dualisms. And in all this Balthazar's ascent to Calvary redeems a fallen humanity. Sublime!
