  2. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    Hard to think of a melodrama whose passion is as venomous. In an alternate timeline, Bresson became a distinguished director of remarkable melodramas.

    "There is no love, Helen. There are only signs of love."

  6. dionysus67's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    Often denounced even by Bressonians, this early masterpiece from one of cinema's major auteurs announces in embryonic form the stylistic canon (metaphysical principle, rather) that will mark the de-personalized acting of his later films. The formal transparency, the obviousness of significations (balck-white), yet their standing resonance, and the economy of exposition deliver a dazzling look on human redemption.

  9. Mazintas's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    In Bresson terms, an irredeemable failure: a complete rebuttal of his ascetic principles. When judged on its own terms, however, entirely adequate. Works well as a melodrama, due in large part to the cathartic final scene, which transcends the trite drama of the preceding acts. There are traces of greatness here, so on those grounds alone, this deserves at least one viewing.

  12. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    7.6/10 my review: https://wp.me/p1eXom-3eS "the film bears testimony of Bresson’s aptitude of grappling with something ablaze with connivance, melancholy and lachrymosity."

    "I know nothing, and I will continue to know Nothing!"

  15. hubertguillaud's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    Derrière ses allures de drame bourgeois, qui évoque dans une langue qu'on ne trouve plus un monde qui n'existe plus, on sent déjà Bresson à la recherche de son style si unique. De la tessiture de la langue, à la préciosité de la construction des plans, Bresson possède déjà son art. Il lui reste à abandonner les acteurs professionnels - sublime Maria Casares ! - et à quitter les richesses du monde.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    Très beau film de Robert Bresson et pénétrante analyse de la psychologie des rapports amoureux, qui mérite toute notre attention... www.cinefiches.com

  17. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    Early Bresson! Though with a script by Jean Cocteau, it feels less like an austere Bresson masterwork and more like a lost Cocteau film: an expressive symbolic clash of fairy tale logic and modernity, with a vibe of fantasy (but not anything outright fantastical). Maria Casares is like an evil Cupid, orchestrating love and using it to hurt people. Even so, does anyone have a time machine and her phone number?

  18. kinotopia's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    nauseous professional over-acting and contemptible characters. Cocteau's dialogue but without his cinematic magic, instead clumsily piped with orchestral muzak. Bresson's anti-Bresson.

  19. alice's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    Tragedia classica (raffinata nella costruzione e nella rappresentazione) contaminata da un tocco onirico e portata avanti da personaggi monolitici.

  20. samuset's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    You can already see many of Bresson's techniques here as well as the perfect casting and excellent story that is assumed for a Bresson film.

  21. Ronja's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    i would have never guessed this was directed by bresson, quite a fun to see how he changed since his early films. maria casares is a real star though and her sparkling tears (plus beautiful blurry and smogy black and white cinematography) add some considerable value to the film. i also got this weird feeling that you see here some lost reality, some quality or colour which doesn't exist anymore.

  22. Lorna Singh's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    The cruelty behind the refinement of the idle class.

  23. rafael≋faust☾'s rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

  24. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Les dames du Bois de Boulogne

    How he lingers on the most beautiful and pertinent feature of "model" in relation to every scenario. These 'breaths' come togheter in delicate truth and rythm, like a necklace of natural pearls.
