With his meticulous approach to craft, formal innovations, and intensely personal style, Robert Bresson was in many ways the prototypical auteur. So how should his oeuvre be understood in an era when the very idea of the lone artistic visionary is continually disputed and deconstructed? In The Bressonians, author Codruta Morari provides one answer in the form of a strikingly original study of Bresson and his cinematic afterlives. She traces Bresson's influence in the work of French filmmakers such as Maurice Pialat, Jean Eustache, and Eric Rohmer-directors whose aesthetic and thematic motifs were outwardly disparate, but who were united by the "problem" of authorial style they inherited from Bresson.
