I was expecting so much more. The characters' actions are unreasonable which make it extremely hard to relate and like the movie, for me. Donkey was the best actor.

Masterpiece if there was ever one. This and Mouchette are two of the greatest of cinema. Once seen it will never leave you.

Sad, hopeless and disturbing story of French countryside from the eyes of Balthazar.

Only 2 people dislike this film? Color me surprised. Personally, I was way less than impressed with anything relating to the humans in this movie but the donkey made up for a 5 or 6 (out of 10) rating.

My first Bresson - and very probably my last. Like most people I actually appreciate it when actors are allowed to express themselves and bring characters and situations to life, and not feel straight-jacketed into giving emotionally flat and listless performances by the director. Only the donkey was reacting with any semblance of reality. That may have been the point, but either way it pissed me off. I disliked pretty much everything about this film and was counting the minutes till it finished. (p.s. also watched Bunuel's "Viridiana" tonight - now that's a great movie.)

I fail to see the "Spiritual Significance" of this film, all I got out of it was that French townies are utter assholes. Except for Jean.

Solid piece of turd. Not interesting, awfully edited and whatever was the idea for the acting, it was a bad idea. The longest 90 minutes since Marienbad.
