Not the easiest entryway into Bresson's work. So abstract/high-brow/whatever, that, yes, it totally verges on the ridiculous. And the Bressonian emotionless acting style fits well in but wouldn't be much help for the neophyte either.
There wasn't quite enough clanking of armour for my taste - so little clanking made it almost impossible for me to believe these were actual 'kaniggets'.
If I hear that canned horse whinny one more time, I'm going to sue Bresson's estate for mental anguish.
