This obscure, overlooked art-house film is a near masterpiece, full of strong acting, brilliant directing, and mythical continuity. Similar in theme to "Babette's Feast" and "Chocolat," it illustrates how the religious zealot is sometimes blinded to the true light of divinity in their search for a perfect, godly world. Tchéky Karyo gives a blazing performance as Etienne De Bourbon, full of passion and spite. Yet, it is the ensemble cast, along with beautiful scenery that makes this film so powerful. The story somewhat falls a bit too feminine, where there are only heroines, no heroes, other than the well meaning Vicar, who is more sympathetic to Elda's cause. Queue this one on Netflix!
