Robert Bresson is one of the most revered auteurs ever to step behind the camera. Even among an oeuvre that includes masterworks like Au hasard Balthazar and Pickpocket, A Man Escaped has always been especially acclaimed. Bresson's adaptation of French Resistance fighter André Devigny's memoirs begins inside Montuc prison, from which our hero is (you guessed it) trying to escape. As ever with Bresson, though, a plot synopsis can't hope to fully convey the experience of watching A Man Escaped — his films are all about the grace in small moments.
