Robert Bresson's final film will play at Film Society of Lincoln Center starting November 11th in a 2K restoration scanned in at 4k from original negative. The restoration premiered at this year's New York Film Festival.
An adaptation of Tolstoy’s story The Forged Coupon is simultaneously bleak and luminous, and sharp enough to cut diamonds. The story of a counterfeit bill’s passage from hand to hand and the resulting tragic consequences is rendered with a clean force that would be startling from a filmmaker of any age; coming from one in his early 80s, it was, and still is, astonishing.L’argent burns white hot—not with anger but with a perfect clarity of purpose: to direct us to see that habitual human callousness is what keeps us out of paradise.
