Robert Bresson's study of a young priest's experiences in a small French village is generally regarded as a classic of world cinema. Adapted from a novel by Georges Bernanos, the film revolves around the priest of Ambicourt (Claude Laydu), an insular, but religious young man, whose lack of social skills causes his alienation within the villlage. His problems are compounded by stomach cancer, which further limits his involvement with his parishioners, leading him to ultimately question his faith and his reason for staying.
