Robert Bresson’s works are regarded as eminent examples of minimalist film because of his eclipses, sparse use of scoring and his non-professional actors. He is well-known for his contribution to the art of cinema and his ascetic approach. In 2012, ‘Sight and Sound’ critics’ poll ranked three of his works namely ‘Au hazard Balthazar,’ ‘A Man Escaped,’ and ‘Pickpocket,’ among the 100 greatest films ever made. In 1934, he made his first short film ‘Public Affair.’ His film ‘Diary of a Country Priest,’ was not only commercially successful in France, but also established him as a major film director across the globe. He also directed ‘The Trial of Joan of Arc,’ which was not well-received by the critics on its original release, however, the movie bagged in the ‘Special Jury Prize,’ in 1962 ‘Cannes Film Festival.’ Some of his other popular films include ‘Ladies of the Park,’ ‘Mouchette,’ ‘L’Argent,’ ‘Lancelot of the Lake,’ ‘The Devil Probably,’ ‘Angels of Sin,’ and more.
