Donissan, a mediocre seminarian, 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. Based on Georges Bernanos's (DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST) novel, this unforgettable drama earned director Pialat a Palme d'Or at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival.
