Au Hasard Balthazar (1966)

  
Format:  Au Hasard Balthazar DVD 
 
 
The deceptively simple story of a donkey named Balthazar and his treatment (and, often, mistreatment) at the hands of various owners over the years, writer/director Robert Bresson's touching allegorical drama is regarded as a landmark of French cinema.

Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; French television show; interview; theatrical trailer. In French with English subtitles.
