La Sorciere 1956 Dir: Andre Michel
6 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I ran a film society in the 1960's this was one of our most popular shows. The film is very romantic and beautifully photographed. The atmosphere is elegiac and reminded me of the style of Les Amants. The Musical score is exceptionally tuneful and I can still remember the main theme 40 years later- it has just stuck in my mind! The female lead; Marina Vlady is very beautiful and enigmatic and the tragedy of her rejection and persecution as a witch by a village community in modern France seemed to me original and moving. It is a film about bigotry and intolerance presented with great power and poetry. I am amazed that it seems to have disappeared. I am sure that modern audiences would enjoy it if it reappeared on TV or on DVD.
