Robert BressonRobert Bresson's clear film language has been a model for directors up to the present. He describes the action in his typical rational style, without dramatic exaggeration, from his protagonist's different perspectives. Jacques is a graduate of the Academy of Art in the Paris of the early Seventies. He lives alone, wanders the streets and observes young women and lovers whom he records on tape. These tapes inspire him while he paints. One night he meets Marthe who is about to jump off Pont Neuf where she has in vain been waiting for her beloved. Jacques prevents the suicide and as a result they get close to each other. But when in the fourth night Marthe accidentially meets her former lover in the street she leaves Jacques the "dreamer" standing there, who returns to his tape recorder and canvas again.
