Au Hasard Balthazar DVD|
Revered director Robert Bresson's celebrated masterpiece is the seemingly simple yet profoundly moving and deeply affecting tale of Balthazar, a donkey in rural France. Passed from owner to owner, Balthazar exists as a beast of burden, suffering for the sins of man. But through his silence and powerlessness his trajectory becomes a stirring, transcendental allegory of purity and hope. Voted 16th in Sight and Sound's recent Greatest Films of All Time poll, Balthazar has rightly taken its place in the pantheon of true French classics.from£8.39 | RRP:

Robert Bresson's classic allegory won the Special Jury Prize at the Venice film festival. A donkey named Balthazar passes into the care of a number of owners, each of whom displays mankind's capacity for kindness or cruelty: a group of young girls use it as a plaything; it becomes a circus attraction; and eventually ends its days as a drug smuggler's 'mule'. Jean-Luc Godard described the film as presenting 'the world in an hour and a half'.
