This incomparable story of crime and redemption from the French master Robert Bresson follows Michel, a young pickpocket who spends his days working the streets, subway cars, and stations of Paris.

In Detail

As his compulsive pursuit of the thrill of stealing grows, however, so does his fear that his luck is about to run out. Michel teams up with a couple of petty thieves in order to improve his craft.

With a police inspector (Jean Pélégri) keeping an eye on him, Michel also tries to get a straight job, but the temptation to steal is hard to resist. Primarily concerning self-fulfilment and redemption through love it has seldom been equalled as a philosophical treatise on the subject.

‘Pickpocket’ is an elegantly crafted, tautly choreographed study of humanity in all its mischief and grace.
