Films Around the World: A Man Escaped (Un Condemné Ā Mort S’est Ēchappé)
Discussion Leader: Dr. Arthur Nolletti, Jr., Professor Emeritus, Framingham State University
Much more than a factual account of a French Resistance leader’s escape from prison, Bresson’s celebrated film is a work of intense spirituality that exemplifies his trademark style and superb use of non-professional actors. In French with English subtitles.
(1956) 101min. Directed by Robert Bresson
