The tale of a nun in love with a priest, during WW2, in France. I like this unusual story, very dark, downbeat at the most. But it could have been a little longer, and the characterization also more emphasized on. The acting is well played. A little french film speaking of an unusual scheme. About french resistance, we are far from L'ARMEE DES OMBRES. I find the actress very good as the nun character.
Yes, the only drawback of this film, the only weakness, would be the lightness of the script.
Jean-Pierre Denis has already made more films, all in the same kind. Interesting stuff always Worth seeing.
