Film follows the life of the donkey Balthazar as he passes from owner to owner, many of them treating him cruelly, all of them are beyond his pure and simple comprehension. His sad predicament as a beast of burden parallels the life of his first human owner, Marie, who, like Balthazar suffers the sins of man. Balthazar is a noble creature, however, and he accepts his fate with grace. The film is a parable of virtue & purity. It is a narrative of transcendence in a life of burden.

r04n1ez's 2020 movie diary (70 movies items)

"Watched: February 28, 2020. Director: Robert Bresson Starring: Anne Wiazemsky as Marie Walter Green as Jacques François Lafarge as Gérard This film makes me wanna ask: what makes a film great? I thought Au Hasard Balthazar's storyline was difficult to follow (characters popping randomly without any introduction nor context), the acting was terribly wooden, the dialogue, poor and merely inexistant, the tone was pessimistic from start to finish... I know It is universally acclaimed among"

"19.8. Bressonin elokuvan voi nähdä vaikkapa kuvauksena työväenluokan heikoista oloista, kertomuksena naisen asemasta aikansa maalaisyhteisössä tai sitten hemmetin toimivana aasi donkey moviena."

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

"2 May. Is one of the most depressing movies made, follows the life of a donkey, ever present in the face of cruelty to him and his owner, a young girl mistreated by the village brutes. Robert Bresson doesn't pull his punches, the bad guys aren't punished for their crimes and the end delivers such a heartbreak. A masterpiece lauded by the greats."
