Description:
Jean-Paul Belmondo delivers a subtly sensual performance as the hot-under-the-collar priest Léon Morin. Unusual, to say the least, is the role director Jean-Pierre Melville assigns to the French superstar.

The French actor plays a devoted man of the cloth who is desired by all the women of a small village in Nazi-occupied France. He finds himself most drawn to a sexually frustrated widow, a religious skeptic whose relationship with her confessor turns into a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire. Rather than disconcerted by her opposition to the Catholic faith, the priest sees a kindred spirit in the woman and provides spiritual guidance to assist her in finding the right path.
