  1. NicoIlGermanico's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

  2. Levi Miah's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Beautifully stark colour palette and framings and some steadily creative camera work. Follows two threads of a simple story but the dialogue almost completely lost me. A few watches and I might understand the religious philosophy. Odd and enigmatic.

  3. James Devereaux's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Frame-by-frame masterpiece. Extraordinary performance by Depardieu. His finest.

  4. Joaquín Font's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Sólo los santos poseen un mapa del mal.

  5. Jegsy's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    With some wonderful set pieces and lovely cinematography, this faith based psychodrama seems positively Nietzschean at times and sublimely silly at others. Depardieu is magnetic in the lead, but the support often fails to match.

  6. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    A film from Maurice Pialat that is strangely both deep and meaningful and yet also fairly, and surprisingly, superficial (probably the wrong word, I cannot quite put my finger on it). Gérard Depardieu is as good as ever in the lead role.

  7. Nicolas Pierce's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    This is kind of extraordinary. You rarely see a film so uncompromising and assured in its rigorous aesthetic, thematic complexity and narrative ambiguity. Mysterious, beautiful and very disquieting.

  8. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

  9. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

  10. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Pialat strays from the invisible border that separates themes of human banalities on one side from religious and existential ambition on the other. I believe he is much better at the former. That's not to detract from this effort, which is atmospheric and chilling. There is something rather theatrical in this film however, and locations feel more like stages. Perhaps this is because the source is a novel.

  11. alimcintyre's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    A salutary lesson in the fact that too much religion can be bad for you. An at times tedious film enlightened only by Depardieu's performance.

  12. captainfez's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Join the priesthood, they said. It'll be fun, they said.

  13. Superfrog's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Second watching today got the same result as I remembered from the first. Recognition of the brilliance of the interrogations failed by the lack of fucks I have to give to esoteric wanderings and self flagellation...

  14. Paul Rot's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    M. Pialat: Thank you for this absolute wonder. In Heaven or in Hell. Wherever.

  15. Juan Javier's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    el único problema es el inverosímil sacerdote

  16. alina.'s rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

  17. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

  18. Bécot Georges's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Un véritable chef d’œuvre ! À voir et revoir ! Tout est chef d’œuvre dans ce film. Bien sûr le texte de Bernanos y est pour beaucoup. Mais c’est ce qu’en a su faire Maurice Pialat qui est bouleversant. Merci à Mubi de faire cette rétrospective d’un si grand cinéaste et poète.

  19. goulton green's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    For his definition of the one who has access to more than one realm, and his torments. The scholar that isn't, his realm is too arbitrary, cutting off accesses. The menial man that isn't, short of time he is preoccupied. Between somewhere, connected like a peasant, mindful like a scholar. He has to be chosen by a master, as the master was chosen too by another master. It left me looking inward.

  21. Hodek Van Mealstrom's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

  22. FISCHER's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    Décriée par les uns, encensée par les autres, cette oeuvre ne mérite pas tant d'attention. A quand la reprise du chef-d'oeuvre de Bresson : "Mouchette" (1967) pour qu'en pâlisse généreusement le soleil de Maurice Pialat... www.cinefiches.com

  23. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Under the Sun of Satan

    One of the two best films of Maurice Pialat and winner of the Golden Palm at Cannes. My detailed review is at http://moviessansfrontiers.blogspot.in/2017/08/209-french-director-maurice-pialats.html
