Donissan, a mediocre seminarist, haunted by Evil and the failure of his divine mission, mortifies his body and is unable to establish any rapport with his parishioners… until the day the abbot meets young Mouchette, who has just committed a mortal sin.

MUBI's take

Maurice Pialat won a hotly contested Palme d’Or at Cannes for this unforgettable drama about spirituality in a cold world. By turns calm and violent, the controversial and intense masterwork, starring Gérard Depardieu and Sandrine Bonnaire, dances between the sacred, the carnal, and the profane.
