A man in a quandary
11 January 2000 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A priest who has abandoned his ministry meets a young man who has just been ordained.

This movie is about the cruel dilemma between a life dedicated to God and faith and a life of more earthly pleasures. In post war France it is also about the mortal aspect of Faith itself.

This may not be the movie of a lifetime but it is a sin to have allowed it to fall in oblivion. Besides, Pierre Fresnay is sublime.
