Robert Bresson was a film director and one of the most important representatives of French cinema. His work with its stark, austere style and focus on moral and theological themes has often been compared that of Dostoyevsky. His films have been a major influence on the work of Andrei Tarkovsky, Paul Schrader and Michael Haneke.
