Adapted from the novel by George Barnanos, 'Mouchette' tells the story of the alienated teenage girl of the title. Neglected by her terminally ill mother and her abusive, alcoholic father, Mouchette's chance encounter with a local hunter sets her on a downward spiral that can only end in tragedy.
Inexorable, brutal and punishing 'Mouchette' is the work of a world class filmmaker in his prime. Nominated for the Palme d'Or and the winner of both the OCIC Award at 1967 Cannes Film Festival and the Pasinetti Award for Best Film at the 1967 Venice Film Festival, Bresson's most celebrated film, 'Mouchette' is the perfect companion piece to 'Au Hasard Balthazar'.
