DECEMBER 14 – DIABOLICAL FRENCH DRAMA
Under The Sun of Satan [Sous le soleil de Satan] (1976 / 97 minutes)
Gerard Depardieu stars in Maurice Pialat’s film about the nature of evil, where a particularly zealous priest in the French countryside becomes tempted by the devil and is obsessed with saving a young murderess (Sandrine Bonnaire) who has killed one of her lovers.
The Devil, Probably [Le diable, probablement] (1977 / 95 minutes)
Robert Bresson’s penultimate film follows the attempts of a suicidal young man (Antoine Monnier) to find some meaning or value in society by immersing himself in religion, politics, and even psychology, all for nought.
