Synopsis

The devil gives an unusual young priest the 'gift' of reading the thoughts of others, and he causes the death of a young girl before performing a miracle of life - but in whose name?

The Review

Often inpenetrable examination of the power of personal will in matters of faith. A depressing vision, but not so much so as Journal d'un Curé de Campagne.
