The Models of "Pickpocket" (2004)

Decent documentary in which Babette Mangolte tracks down the three principals in Robert Bresson's Pickpocket and asks them about the film and working with Bresson. Like most films of this sort, it's alternately fascinating and dull. Most of the revelations hit upon by these three people could have been gleaned from anyone with an interest in film, but there's still some good stories about working with the man, and it's funny to see where these people ended up. Marika Green is astonishingly beautiful, considering she was pushing sixty at the time of this film's making.

Grade: B-
