Mildly entertaining film from the French filmmaker has a woman being burned to death because she was found guilty of being a witch. Afterward the woman reappears as an angel and seeks revenge.

The special effects of the burning were nicely done as was the ending, which is sure to get a laugh. Nothing here is too overly impressive so I'd rank this as a middle ground for the director.
