Movie Info

Born into poverty and sold into slavery, Vincent de Paul (Pierre Fresnay) survives to become a respected clergyman and a confidante of the nobility. But when the Black Plague descends upon France, Vincent leaves his comfortable post to become a simple parish priest. Single-minded in his devotion to the wretched poor, he rallies the landed class to create charitable organizations, and in the process revolutionizes treatment of the needy the world over.

Audience Reviews for Monsieur Vincent

  • Mar 01, 2007
    This movie put a lump in my throat by the end because you really become close to this generous generous man. The movie gives you lots to think about. One idea particularly stuck with me- Monsieur de Paul has just realized some truths about the lives of the poor he has vowed to help and goes to a younger fellow priest to enlist his assistance. Monsieur de Paul says (in French with English subtitles so I paraphrase), "You can't worry about saving the souls of the poor. You have to help them live a life worthy of a soul first." That's profound to me! Compassion and pity are not the same and Monsieur Vincent struggles with feeling pity quite a bit it seems. However, you can't help thinking that this man, who served the poor, sick, and abandoned, started something worthwhile! Claude Renoir was the cinematographer. Other than him, there are not too many people in the cast and crew who became very well known outside of France. Still it is a very special film that is not by one of the famous auteurs.
