Robert Bresson

Birthdate: 25. September 1901
Date of death: 18. December 1999

Robert Bresson was a French film director. Known for his ascetic approach, Bresson contributed notably to the art of cinema; his non-professional actors, ellipses, and sparse use of scoring have led his works to be regarded as preeminent examples of minimalist film.

Bresson is among the most highly regarded French filmmakers of all time. His works A Man Escaped and Balthazar, at Random were ranked among the 100 greatest films ever made in the 2012 Sight & Sound critics' poll. Other films of his, such as Mouchette and L'Argent , also received many votes. Jean-Luc Godard once wrote, "Robert Bresson is French cinema, as Dostoyevsky is the Russian novel and Mozart is German music."
