German film director Rainer Werner Fassbinder was on that particular jury, and championed Bresson's film:

"Robert Bresson's Le Diable probablement . . . is the most shattering film I've seen this Berlin Festival. I think it's a major film [...]. [I]n the future---and this world will probably

last for another few thousand years---this film will be more important than all the rubbish which is now considered important but which never really goes deep enough[.]

The questions Bresson asks will never be unimportant."

Robert Bresson (French: [ʁɔbɛʁ bʁɛsɔ̃]; 25 September 1901 – 18 December 1999) was a French film director known for his spiritual, ascetic and aesthetic style. He contributed notably to the art of film and influenced the French New Wave. He is often referred to as the most highly regarded French filmmaker after Jean Renoir.[3] Bresson's influence on French cinema was once described by Jean-Luc Godard, quoting "Robert Bresson is French cinema, as Dostoevsky is the Russian novel and Mozart is the German music."[4]

    What I find amaizing is that the director was over 70 when he made it... There are few good interesting points, though the one I find more intriguing is what choice do you have when you are convinced that you cant chance the way the world is.... I guess, as the main character, you kill yourself... is it not possible for one to change the way things are?... I cant say is an uplifting movie but it give you few things to thinkk about...

    Tracey, Les Diaboliques was the movie I mentioned to you.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzbGtjtfZwA

      Over 70! Wow! Well, you could say the main character made a well informed choice that he didn't want to live in this world - he researched the facts and decided that there was too much bad about it. Most of us know that but as long as all that badness doesn't affect us... He was also 'numb' and said he couldn't feel anything though which is a sign of depression.

      Actually, the main character also had fair points - it's not like the world / environment has got any better since 1977 only worse, as he predicted so in many ways he was right! :)

    Good story reflecting the conflict between both human conditions of wanting personal meaning to life, inner happiness and that of wanting to make the world a safer and more just place for everyonr to share

    Fantastic film, almost 'ahead of it's time' with the issues it explores - or just 'of it's time' which not many films are - ever.
