Hands of Bresson

“The things one can express with the hands...” – Robert Bresson

“A work of archival criticism that forgoes the language of rigour for that of rapture... here are hands – votive, tender, purloining, trembling – that make me want to raise my own hands in gratitude to this mysterious poet.” - Sukhdev Sandhu, Sight & Sound (best films of 2014)

Music: Schubert, Piano Sonata No. 20, D. 959
