Home / Now Showing / DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST
Long considered a summit of world cinema, Bresson’s adaptation of George Bernanos’ renowned novel – about a young priest whose attempts to assuage the suffering of the people in his village are met with malice and indifference – established the austere style for which Bresson subsequently became famous. Claude Laydu, his downcast visage among the gallery of indelible faces in Bresson’s ouevre, brings a wounding soulfulness to his role as the ill-fated priest.
