Drama Robert Bresson's adaptation of Georges Bernanos' novel features Nadine Nortier as the teenage daughter of a cruel father and an alcoholic mother who decides she has nothing left to live for and decides to commit suicide. The director's gaze on the plight of this girl, played by a non-professional, is austere yet spiritual and shows, once again, his ability to convey so much with his typical restraint.
