Léon Morin, Priest @ Classic French Film Festival
Léon Morin, Priest
(Léon Morin, prêtre)
Jean-Pierre Melville
1961, B&W, 117 min. Blu-ray source

Jean-Paul Belmondo delivers a subtly sensual performance in the hot-under-the-collar titular priest. The French superstar 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  played by "Amour's" Emmanuelle Riva  a religious skeptic whose relationship with her confessor turns into a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, the film is an irreverent pleasure from Jean-Pierre Melville, one of French cinema's towering virtuosos.

Intro/discussion by Renee Hirshfield, adjunct professor film studies at Southwestern Illinois College
