Une femme douce (1969) AKA A Gentle Woman

Elle steps off the balcony of her Parisian apartment, plunging to her death. Why has she done it? As her pawnbroker husband, Luc, looks over her dead body, director Robert Bresson’s eerie, elegant picture traces their lives together in flashback. Elle is the “Gentle Creature” — meek, dreamy and thoughtful. She entrances Luc, who pursues her passionately. They marry, but the match never seems right, and things turn sour, grimly heading toward an inevitable end.

Director: Robert Bresson.
Stars: Dominique Sanda, Guy Frangin, Jeanne Lobre, Claude Ollier, Jacques Kébadian, Gilles Sandier, Dorothée Blank.

    Bresson’s silences, his understatement, the ellipses when we look for answers is what I find so compelling. Thank you for this film and perhaps more Bresson if possible?
