The Devil Probably (French: Le Diable probablement) is a 1977 French drama film by director Robert Bresson. It was entered into the 27th Berlin International Film Festival, where it won the Silver Bear - Special Jury Prize. Besides Les Anges du péché, it's Bresson's only film not adapted from or based on a previous work.German film director Rainer Werner Fassbinder was on that particular jury, and championed Bresson's film:Robert Bresson's Le Diable probablement ... is the most shattering film I've seen this Berlin Festival. I think it's a major film [...]. [I]n the future—and this world will probably last for another few thousand years—this film will be more important than all the rubbish which is now considered important but which never really goes deep enough[.] The questions Bresson asks will never be unimportant."The critic J. Hoberman described the movie with one sentence: "A Dostoyevskian story of a tormented soul, presented in the stylized manner of a medieval illumination."
