  2. eugenie de sade's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

  3. Ayinde Anderson's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    Robert Bresson's use of macro storytelling through gesture and silence creates gives way to the importance of the essential details of life. It's great to see storytelling done in this fashion. I'm not too big on the film itself, but I can't knock the filmmaking.

  4. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    His presence feels like a challenge, a gaze from being itself.

  5. miles's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

  7. SpacePirate's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    Pretentious garbage. How do people sit through this?

  8. courtneylesueur's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    Harrowing and infuriating (re: Marie & that asshole kid). That donkey should have won all the awards.

  9. Jimmi HRS's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    A potent nihilistic film, that depicts life as it is; a somewhat random string of beautiful and profoundly sad events. The donkey Balthazar witnesses great cruelty and (very rarely) kindness from the people coming in and out of its life. His view of life is as a spectator, through him the film's audience is left to process their emotions. In all its simplicity it depicts the human condition in under two hours... wow.

  10. apotheke's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

  11. Federico Maria Baldacci's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

  12. Merih Sakarya's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    Film catches you in a way and puts you in a deep melancholy at the end. We lately understood that we are following the donkey and her. The young girl, loosing all her hopes is so touching. Even in the last sceen you cant stop to say that the man should save her! Anybody can save her! But nobody!

  14. Ferit Karaduman's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    genç bir kadın ile bir eşeğin acı dolu hayatını nasıl olur da bir bütünlük içerisinde anlatırız demişler... sonuç bu film olmuş... sadece örnek teşkil edebilecek ya da çeşitliliğe dair fikir oluşturabilecek bir film... ötesi yok...

  18. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    I didn't want to give this 5 stars. Frustrating. Maddening. Heartbreaking. Annoying. I wanted to kill that punk kid. But alas, it stayed with me. Very french acting but the direction is just....amazing

  19. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    it is questioning the ownership and sense of belonging with using donkey and girl.İf you dont ask yourself ''why this director showed early small ages of this donkey ?''you cant understand this movie anytime . donkey and people growed together.grown up donkey is still same but adult people turns into beast . this animal represents the lost innocence of humanity .Girl and donkey just tools for explaining this topics.

  20. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    3.5-4. A humble, weighty, beautiful movie. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Bresson's work, after this.

  21. Noah Lethbridge's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    Tragic and astonishing. Gerard Depardieu completely disappears into the role of Balthazar (I know his name's not listed in the credits, but you can't fool me, I know that face when I see it). Also, why didn't Bresson shoot this in color stock? LAZY.

  22. HSBilly's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

  23. Mister Monkeyman's rating of the film Au hasard Balthazar

    My girlfriend cried for fifteen minutes at the end of the film and said that it was "terrible" for its depiction of animal cruelty. What is remarkable is that the emotional power of the film comes from its lack of emotion. We have become used to the language of cinema being used to coax and manipulate our feelings. But, the flat acting, the absence of emotional cues are what makes this so frustrating and powerful.
