Is there any more heartbreaking character in the history of film than Balthazar the donkey? He never complains, other than the occasional bray. He just plods on as his owners in and around a small French village progress from kind to indifferent to callous to cruel. Thus Robert Bresson tells us more about human beings than any dialogue ever could.

1966 Robert Bresson 1.66:1 B&W DCP 95 min. In French with subtitles. A Janus Films Release.
