Predating the "after the revolution" disillusionment of recent
Generation-X films, this film from French new wave master Robert
Bresson follows Charles, a modern-day fallen angel, and his quartet of
friends, who are all in revolt against the pollution of an
industrialized consumer society. Unable to find redemption in
revolution, the church, psychoanalysis or even love, Charles makes a
desperate bargain with a junkie friend. Originally banned in France
for its daring portrait of alienated youth, The Devil, Probably
"expresses the malaise of our time more profoundly and more
magnificently than any work of art in any medium" (Andrew Sarris,
Village Voice). "A masterpiece! A voluptuous film!" (Francois
Truffaut). French with English subtitles.
