Les Anges du péché

I’ve just seen a ghost . . . …ditions Gallimard in France has recently released a stunningly-produced DVD of Robert Bresson’s debut feature, Les Anges du PÈchÈ (1943), complete with Anne Wiazemsky’s elaborate (but unsubtitled) 2004 documentary, Anges 1943, Les histoire d’un film. The film was digitally restored and played as part of the “Cannes Classics” revival series in 2005, and it’s so much better than extant unofficial video releases floating around, it’s like seeing it anew. I’ve added my review to the site I co-administrate, Robert-Bresson.com, here.
