A MAN ESCAPED

A MAN ESCAPED

In a genre crowded with quality films, director Robert Bresson’s POW drama has become legendary, in part because it strips down the experience of a man desperate to escape to the essentials. That’s in keeping with the approach Bresson took with all of his films. The filmmaker, who spent a year in a German prison camp during World War II, based this story on the experiences of Andre Devigny, a French Resistance fighter sent in 1943 to the infamous prison in Lyons, where 7,000 of the 10,000 prisoners housed.
