Diary of Country Priest (1951) Directed by Robert Bresson
Presented by Walter E. Langsam
Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.
A new priest (Claude Laydu) arrives in the French country village of Ambricourt to attend to his first parish. The apathetic and hostile rural congregation rejects him immediately. Through his diary entries, the suffering young man relays a crisis of faith that threatens to drive him away from the village and from God. With his fourth film, Robert Bresson began to implement his stylistic philosophy as a filmmaker, stripping away all inessential elements from his compositions, the dialogue and the music, exacting a purity of image and sound. - Criterion (122 min)
