A heavenly being visits a French town
24 November 1998 | by (Houston, Tx, USA) – See all my reviews

The angel paints the very grey village after a very grey funeral.

My favorite line is when he talks to the priest about the villages belief in afterlife and why people do not celebrate when people die.
