Mouchette is one of Robert Bresson's greatest cinematic achievements, plumbing immense emotional depths in a searing, heartbreaking portrait of human frailty. Hemmed in by a dying mother, an alcoholic father and a baby brother in need of care, the adolescent Mouchette searches for sanctuary in nature and domestic chores. As the delicate intricacies of her life are played out a touching, tender and tragic portrait is painted, making her of one of cinema's most memorable tragic heroines. An essential piece of classic French filmmaking.

One of Bresson's most challenging character studies. The titular girl is perhaps unlikable, but worthy of study and empathy.

I did enjoy this film, without going into too much detail it is quite a sad film and I can't think of too many others like this that really make you feel for the main character. At times it feels like you become so attached to the young girl that you become to realise that you as the viewer are an outsider too. You empathise so much with her that you start to wonder will she ever escape her awful life. I will definitely watch the film again, maybe I will even appreciate the subject matter more so.
