Loosely based on a posthumous Tolstoy novella, this offbeat crime drama follows a counterfeit note as it passes from one person to the next. True to form, director Robert Bresson uses the story as a conduit for themes of sin, redemption, and persecution. It earned him a best director prize at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival.
