On the Structural Use of Sound

Mizoguchi's 

The Crucified Lovers

 Robert Bresson - on his own film practice said,

"sound, because of its greater realism, is infinitely more evocative than an image, which is essentially only a stylization of visual reality. "A sound always evokes an image; an image never evokes a sound...that he replaces an image with a sound whenever possible, thus remaining completely faithful to the principle of maximum bareness and spareness underlying his creative method." (p90)
