In Money too Bresson shows his interest in young people as protagonists, though Yvon, initially an innocent victim of circumstance, is ultimately defeated by the chain of events that binds him to crime and punishment. At the end, like Bruno, Yvon confesses his wrongdoings but fails thereby to save himself. Unlike his Bressonian predecessor, Fontaine in Un Condamné à mort s’est échappé (A Man Escaped, 1956), Yvon is now a condemned murderer with little chance of escape. Michel, the antihero of Bresson’s Pickpocket (1959), resembles Bruno in The Child in following a life of petty crime that he justifies despite its apparent futility.

Mizoguchi neither moralises nor sentimentalises its prostitute characters. Though all five women struggle financially in a cycle of payment and debt, they do what they do to survive, as the money is better than working for nothing at home. The system, a combination of government and employer, is always going to exploit them anyway by cheating them, turning them against one another, or threatening them with no work at all. There are of course other directors and other films that relate in some way to the Dardennes.
