Le feu follet

Louis Malle France, 1963

Eriugena82's rating of the film The Fire Within

An extremely bleak and austere film, which is to be expected considering the subject. In any case, while not perfect and at times a touch heavy-handed with it's themes, I did find it to be an interesting portrait of a flawed but sympathetic character at odds with the modern world.
