Léon Morin, prêtre (1961)

Posted : 6 years, 2 months ago on 29 October 2012 12:02

It is almost a dare to put (Jean-Paul Belmondo in the skin of a priest with his face and fame of gulf was already earning at the time) but this interpretation and also his partenaire Emmanuelle Riva as I deem it best fact of the movie.

And this though, very personal, such Morin (as orthodox and monolithic, with no hint of cracks) I find it quite unfriendly. Although a script to start rubbing something struck him as hilarious, for example, in the meteoric "conversion" Barny, narration and especially impeccable staging, help to make visible this storm sentimental.

Please note the scenarios crafted and decorated and the little details in action and, even more, the splendid photograph of Henri Decaë.
