    Drama / French Cinema / Criterion Collection . Direction: Robert Bresson

    A new priest (Claude Laydu) arrives in the French country village of Ambricourt to attend to his first parish. The apathetic and hostile rural congregation rejects him immediately. T

    Through his diary entries, the suffering young man relays a crisis of faith that threatens to drive him away from the village and from God. With his fourth film, Robert Bresson began to implement his stylistic philosophy as a filmmaker, stripping away all inessential elements from his compositions, the dialogue and the music, exacting a purity of image and sound.

    Features: full frame . B&W . English subtitles . Audio commentary by film historian Peter Cowie; 11-minutes of deleted scenes; New and improved English subtitle translation; New essay by film critic Frédéric Bonnaud.
