Good actors' performance, if a little didactic !
I discovered this one recently in my local market on a double DVD with a film called "Les Grandes Gueules". It was interesting to see Belmondo in the rôle of a priest and I thought his dialogue and ideas were very convincing indeed ! Emanuelle Riva, I know less but she put in a good performance too. The outcome, nevertheless, is predictable and, as is often the case in French films unfortunately, ends on a pessimistic note ! Although the film is in black and white and from 1961, picture and sound quality are reasonably good. I was most pleased to see Belmondo in this rôle which changes somewhat from stuntman and the usual commissaires de police ! I am moderately religious so was interested in the theme and ideas of the film. That said, on the other hand, to someone who is anti-religion, heathen or atheist, the film might indeed appear uninteresting and boring !
