Storyline

Twenty years after taking an acrimonious leave of his family and friends in order to join the Roman church, Monsignor Renard returns to his home village as parish priest. World War Two is well under way, and Nazi occupation is imminent. In addition to reassuring the locals, Renard must also attempt to repair his relationship with estranged brother Yves, who resents his sibling having escaped the responsibility of running the family business.

Great movie!
6 June 2000 | by (na,Texas) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was so amazing! The acting was spectacular and the plot and everything about it. I saw it on KLRU on every sunday night that it came on. I think that the last part that the station showed, was the best. I've seen a lot of WWII movies and I have to say this has been the best by far!
