Dossignan is a very zealous rural priest. The dean Menou-Segrais tries to keep him reasonable. But Dossignan will be tempted by Satan, then will try to save the soul of Mouchette, a young girl who killed one of her lovers. A film about God's grace and mysticism.


Very difficult film 5/10 Smart, challenging, ultimately unsuccessful film that wowed viewers at Cannes.The film has exquisite acting and some brilliant scenes, but it's too convoluted to make any kind of impact on the viewer.Gerard Depardieu shines in his difficult role as does Sandrine Bonnaire. The best scene in the film is when Depardieu comes across Satan -- chilling.
