Acclaimed French director Robert Bresson helms this stylized black-and-white drama following the trials of a Paris pickpocket named Michel (Martin LaSalle), a thief who grows so successful at his craft that he worries his luck will run out. Despite his own fears -- and the persistent pleas from his girlfriend and ailing mother that he take up a more honorable profession -- Michel remains chained to his compulsion to steal.
