Summary
Léon Morin is a devoted man of the cloth who is also the crush object of all the women of a small village in Nazi-occupied France. He finds himself most drawn to a sexually frustrated widow, a borderline heretic whose relationship with her confessor is a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, Léon Morin, Priest is an irreverent pleasure from one of French cinema's towering virtuosos
