    A Man Escaped

(Un condamné à mort s'est échappé, Robert Bresson, France 1956, 99 min., 35mm, French w/subtitles)

12 Postcards from Prison. An unceasingly tense thriller, A Man Escaped draws upon French Resistance hero André Devigny’s autobiographical book and Robert Bresson’s own experiences as a POW. Captured and sent to solitary confinement by the Nazis, French Resistance officer Fontaine slowly and methodically plans his escape, his every move marking the difference between life and death. A work of metaphysical suspense and resolute beauty, A Man Escaped is a genuinely moving encounter with limits and the will to transcend them.
