Robert Bresson

A Passion for Film

Tony Pipolo

  • Good promotional opportunities: Anthology Film Archives and the Alliance Francaise in NYC and Toronto Cinematheque will do a Bresson retrospective to coincide with the book's publication in September. Other retrospectives will be held to commemorate the tenth-anniversary of Bresson's death in December 2009.
  • Featured on advert for Screen, October 2009 issue
  • Written in engaging, highly readable prose-Pipolo is a journalist and critic who is accustomed to writing for general audiences.
  • Provides an expansive perspective on the great director's life and work: Pipolo's is the first study to probe the heavily biographical elements of Bresson's ouvre, showing how the two are inextricably linked.
