Director : Robert Bresson / France / 1959 / B&W / French
Robert Bresson’s incomparable table of crime and redemption follows Michel, a young pickpocket who spends his days working in the streets, subway cars, and train stations of Paris. As his compulsion grows, however, so too does his fear that his luck is about to run out. Dextrously choreographed and crafted in Bresson’s inimitable style, Pickpocket reveals a master director is at the height of his powers.
