Journal d'un curé de campagne

Directed by Robert Bresson
France, 1951
Drama

Synopsis

A new priest arrives in a French country village to attend to his first parish, but after encountering immediate rejection, he relays his crisis of faith into his diary. Robert Bresson’s fourth film strips away all inessential aesthetic elements, exacting a purity of image and sound.
