Part of the Cinema Rediscovered Season
Adapted from Fyodor Dostoevsky's short story A Gentle Creature, Robert Bresson's first feature in colour celebrates its 50th anniversary with a 2K digital restoration.
The film introduced Dominique Sanda as Elle, in her very first screen role. Set against 1960s Paris, Elle spends too much time on the balcony of her apartment. Through a series of devastating flashbacks, Elle's relationship with her husband Luc (Guy Frangin) is exposed. Bresson's piercing and unforgettable film reveals the prescient impact of the male gaze.
Touring to Filmhouse as part of Cinema Rediscovered on Tour, a Watershed programme with support from BFI awarding funds from National Lottery.
