L'Argent (1983) ****This is a hard film to rate for any number of reasons. It ischallenging for one, and not really a movie for another. L'argent ismore a philosophical essay on celluloid than anything else. This couldbe said for any or all of Bresson's films for that matter. His style offilm-making...
Robert Bresson tells the story of a handful of people who aremanipulated by greed for the key component of capitalism: Money(originating in the form of a counterfeit bill, I'll also tell you it'sbased fairly loosely on a Tolstoy novella "The Forged Note"). Adisturbing series of events change the liv...
"L'Argent" is Robert Bresson's very last film and a piece of work thatwent through a lot of financial problems to see the light of day. Itwas dismissed by many producers before being finally taken in hand bythe Ministry of the Arts. At that time, Jack Lang was the ministry andhis daughter served as ...
On a strictly formalist level, Robert Bresson's swan song, "L'Argent"(1983, France;which directly translates to "Money"), can be regarded asPure Cinema. That is to say, no emotions, no actions, no music, none ofsuch "artificiality" that has customarily been associated with cinema.At best, the film (...
L'Argent is commonly hailed as Bresson's parting masterpiece, but sadlyit's seriously undermined by atrocious performances and a completelyunconvincing last reel. Which is a shame, because there's much toadmire here. His adaptation of a Tolstoy short story about thedisastrous consequences for the in...
"L'Argent" (French, 1983): When I saw Bresson's 1974 film "Lancelot duLac" in 1977, I was amazed. What a stripped down, abstract, minimalistfilm! How empty, unemotional, and full of dread can one film be? Well,he met this challenge nine years later with his own (and last film)"L'Argent". Imagine scr...
Robert Bresson was one of those rare storytellers that could take auniversal theme and apply it in real-world terms into an image that wasboth beautiful and horrifying. L'Argent is Bresson's opinions on money;and the evil lengths that some people do in order to get it. The ideabeing that it has the ...
On the DVD for the film L'Argent, it's writer/director Robert Bressonsays that he dislikes his films being called "works", because he seeseach films as being a sort of "striving" or attempt towards somethingmore and more perfect with cinematography and so on, and mostspecifically to strive towards t...
I just wanted to make a quick comment regarding the comment ofsuekendall about l'argent. L'argent is one of Bresson's biggestmasterpieces. A merge of minimalism and strong observation. And as forthe actors in l'argent, they are not wooden, they are real. Bressonmade frequent use of non-performers to...
In the modern jungle of the society presented in Robert Bresson's lastfilm "L'Argent" (The Money) the survival of the fittest gets translatedas the survival of the smartest person and the material for that is themoney in all of his forms. The one who has the money controlseverything, everyone, has t...
This film expresses perfectly the affliction humanity suffers from becauseof it's devotion to money. It communicates at a level which is rather farbeyond words and simple rhetoric, and which is easily understandable if youtake the time to watch it carefully and with an open mind. It's the sort offil...
From director Robert Bresson (Pickpocket, Au Hasard Balthazar), thisfilm featuring as one of the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die inthe book was one I was naturally looking forward to watching, despitenot knowing much about it at all, but that didn't matter. Basically afather refuses to give ...
"They are not intrinsically evil, but their behaviour has evilconsequences." - Bresson Economist Frederic Bastiat once wrote "the parable of the brokenwindow", in which he examined the economic implications of a boybreaking a shopkeeper's window in a fictional town. After the window'sdestruction, so...
L'argent (1983) is nothing but a character study of innocent man whoturned in to a mass murderer.Follow him and study him when he was inhousehold,prison,hotel,and lastly in old women's house. Ultimately hekills any one who comes in to his obstruction.Lastly he kills generousold women who was so kind...
Robert Bresson's last film is based on a short story by great Russianwriter Leo Tolstoy.L'Argent is not at all a direct adaptation ofTolstoy's work of literary production "Faux Billet".It is a film forwhich Bresson infused some of his own ideas in order to create adifferent narrative.It was made in ...
Robert Bresson is an intensely Catholic director whose sensibilities,unlike those of most of his French peers and colleagues, seem morealigned to the existential stillness of Ingmar Bergman or Carl Dreyer,a tradition imbued with the spirit of the still life. His is a worldwhere the density, or inten...
Robert Bresson is to cinema what Tàpies or Picasso would be topainting. It is indeed his last work which contains a concentratedknowledge of Art from an artist with 83 years of experience. I wouldrecommend to anyone interested on his career and his cinema to read hisnotes entitled "Notes sur le cin...
"You have me on your conscience. You have to answer for that now." Sostates our innocent main protagonist to the guy who sent him to jail.February, as I mentioned before, is the month of groundhogs, love andpresidential birthdays. It is also the month where churches (mineespecially) discuss the the ...
The more Bresson films I see the more I realize that his films are notfor me. As usual, the acting in L'Argent (The Money) is intentionallywooden and emotionless. The film is also characteristically (andmaddeningly) brief. Rather than explain crucial points, Bresson choosesto hint at them to maintai...
Bresson's last film is one of his best. He leaves no room for anythingextra. There are no more dissolves, no more music (just his brilliantsoundtrack). He moves through so many many facets of society soquickly, efficiently and daringly. Today's filmmakers should learn alesson with their 2 hour films...
This movie is pretty strange. Although it is not a silent movie, thespeechesdon't last more than 10 minutes ina 90 minutes time. The story is about a truck driver, Yvon, that goes tojail because of a forged500 franc note that he doens't know is forged. When the police catch himwith the false note,he...
The evils of money revealed using a half dozen gay fashion models asthe main characters.Bresson seemed to have an eye for gay thin young men.... even all theextras the police etc all fit the same mold. Which makes the onlyinteresting characters the women and men over the age of 20. (not gaybashing s...
L'argent (1983) *** (out of 4) Interesting and stripped down of any sort of emotion, this French filmfrom director Bresson makes for an entertaining 85-minutes even if youcan't connect to any of it. The film starts off by following around acounterfeit 500-franc note as it passes from one person to t...
This is only my second Bresson, the first being "Balthazar." That wasrewarding in a sort of intellectual Norman Rockwell sense. This is not.If you don't know Bresson, he's celebrated in some film communities forhis economy, his approach to cinema that supports one view of what itmeans to be cinemati...
I first saw L'Argent in 1983 during its original theatrical release.The ad campaign at the time proudly boasted, "The only film to receiveFour Stars from all three of Chicago's major movie critics!" which atthe time included Gene Siskel, Roger Ebert, and Dave Kerr. With eageranticipation I trooped d...
