Jean-Pierre Melville: Léon Morin, Priest (Léon Morin, prêtre)

Sat, Jan 12 / 5 pm
Wed, Jan 16 / 7 pm
Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
1961, France, 128 min
French with English subtitles

French superstar Jean-Paul Belmondo plays a devoted man of the cloth who is desired by all the women of a small village in Nazi-occupied France. He finds himself most drawn to a sexually frustrated widow (Emmanuelle Riva), a religious skeptic whose relationship with her confessor turns into a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire.


The Jean-Pierre Melville Retrospective is presented in partnership with the Alliance Française du Manitoba, Institut Français, Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Canada, and the Jean-Pierre Melville Foundation.

            

Reviews

Jean-Paul Belmondo delivers a subtly sensual performance. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, Léon Morin, Priest is an irreverent pleasure from one of French cinema’s towering virtuosos.
- Gary Tooze, DVD Beaver
