Day 72: Au Hasard Balthazar 1966

Au Hasard Balthazar 1966

This film is highly regarded by filmmakers and critics. Again, knowing nothing about the film, I was surprised to learn that it’s about life through the eyes of a donkey’s experiences. It’s not a cute film, however. In fact it is an indictment about how humans treat each other, with religious references and symbols, which reveal the hypocrisy of some people towards themselves and to each other.
