Meditations on film-making by one of the masters of the moving image. In short notes, using the fewest possible words, Bresson offers pointed, precise koans on his aesthetic and "method", which involves dispensing with manufactured scenes and histrionic performances in favor of authentic emotion, "models" rather than actors.

This small booklet should be in the back pocket of everyone from the most successful directors to aspiring movie makers, present on every film set to remind those who work in cinema of the supremacy of the camera eye, especially when employed and wielded by a true Master. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0704334968, Paperback)

Robert Bresson makes some quite radical distinctions between what he terms "cinematography" and something quite different: "cinema"—which is for him nothing but an attempt to photograph theater and use it for the screen.

Director of The Trial of Joan of Arc, Pickpocket, A Prisoner Escapes, Diary of a Country Priest, Money, and many other classic films, Robert Bresson is, quite simply, one of the most brilliant cinematographers in the history of film.
