A Man Escaped (1956)

Robert Bresson directs François Leterrier, Charles Le Clainche and Maurice Beerblock in this arthouse drama where a French resistance fighter slowly escapes prison.

Based on a true story but it feels like we are operating in constrictive metaphor. There’s some tasks that take our protagonist months to achieve that no matter how painstakingly and cautious you did them shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours. That gripe aside this is a very immersive experience that pulls and tugs at your own bravery, ethics and resolve with a surreptitious grip.
