SonOfRambow's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

Painful to watch, but essential. Not my favourite Bresson and Wiazemsky didn't have as much presence as she deserved. However in terms of an animal's performance, I'd put it right at the top in film history. Though who was really 'humane' in this? Aren't we all animals? Emotional films like this really make me question human nature. I should rewatch, but damn, it's painful.
