Diary of a Country Priest

0 Love It
Save it
Alone and dying of cancer, a young curate faces the mortal torment of failure in his task of saving souls. What he finds in the ultimate victory over self is that mysterious touch of grace which remains one of the immutable signs of a Bresson film. Watching this spiritual odyssey is almost a religious experience in itself, but one which has nothing to do with faith or dogma, everything to do with Bresson's unique ability to exteriorise an interior world.
