Watch Mouchette (1967) Online
(Mouchette is a French language film with English subs)Mouchette is one of Robert Bresson’s greatest cinematic achievements, plumbing immense emotional depths in one of the most searing, heartbreaking depictions of human frailty ever committed to celluloid. Hemmed in by a dying mother, an alcoholic father and a baby brother desperately in need of care, the adolescent Mouchette searches for sanctuary in the wilds of nature and the banality of domestic chores. As the delicate intricacies of her life are played out, a touching, tender portrait of cinema’s most memo- rable and tragic heroine is slowly painted, revealing a deep and heartfelt humanity absent from most contemporary filmmaking. Lovingly restored and beautifully presented, this new, high definition transfer release of Mouchette displays the film as the essential piece of classic French filmmaking it truly is.
