| Marvellous, under-rated movie
Fantastic movie, with certainly the only script written in believable 17th-century French, about the rebel Huguenots of the Cévennes. It takes place after Louis XIV revokes the Edit de Nantes which had allowed Protestants freedom of religion in France for a few decades, and shows the persecutions waged against them.

The movie is shot in the still wild mountainous areas of Central France where the rebels took refuge.

It earned a well-deserved prize at the 1972 Berlin Film Festival.

It's simply-made with excellent actors who don't ham it up, packs an amazing emotional wallop, and should be available on DVD.
