Directed by Maurice Pialat | 1987

With Gérard Depardieu, Sandrine Bonnaire, Maurice Pialat, Alain Artur, Yann Dedet

“The miraculous, the visionary and the diabolical fuse here in a film that grapples simply and powerfully with the unknown.”
—The New York Times

A priest (Depardieu) is plunged into a severe spiritual crisis brought on by an encounter with a horse trader—who may really be the devil—and a fixation with a teenage murderess (Bonnaire). Pialat’s stark, ultra-intense rumination on faith—which Jonathan Rosenbaum called “a major work by a major filmmaker”—was greeted with boos upon winning the Palme d’Or.
