L'Argent - Robert Bresson (1983)

Wikipedia - "L'Argent (French pronunciation: ​[laʁ.ʒɑ̃], meaning 'Money') is a 1983 French drama film written and directed by Robert Bresson. The film is loosely inspired by the first part of Leo Tolstoy's novella The Forged Coupon. It was Bresson's last film, and earned its maker the Director's Prize at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival. A young man enters his father's study to claim a monthly allowance. His father obliges, but the son presses for more, citing a debt at school he must pay. The father dismisses him and an appeal to his mother fails. This leads him to try to pawn his watch to a friend, who instead gives him a forged 500-franc note. After the trade, the youth lingers to peruse an album of nude art. ..."
