Movie Info

Under the German occupation, in a small French town, the arrival of a new priest arouses the interest of all women ... Barny, a young communist and atheist woman, can not however be more indifferent. Driven by curiosity, the young skeptic went to the church in order to challenge this abbot: Léon Morin. Usually so sure of it, Barny is yet to be destabilized by this young priest, as seductive as it is intelligent. Intrigued, it takes the play of their exchanges, to the point of questioning its deepest certainties. Would Barny not succumb to the charm of the young priest?

Critic Reviews for The Confession (La confession)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2)

  • This beautifully photographed tale of religion, redemption and repressed sensuality can lumber at times due to the heavy-handedness of the scenario, though the many verbal duels between the two leads are also what make it work.

  • A solid, consistently compelling look at the big questions of life laced into the framework of a transformative meeting of the minds under dicey circumstances.
