Jeff Musso Writers: Liam O'Flaherty (novel), Jeff Musso (screenplay) | 4 more credits » Stars: Pierre Fresnay, Jean-Louis Barrault, Viviane Romance

A religious fanatic finds his entire life and philosophy turned upside-down as he falls in love with a girl and kills her in a jealous rage. He searches for peace of mind and a desire to justify the murder of the girl to himself. He becomes mentally deranged as he tries to rationalize his deed and his world falls apart around him. A police inspector patiently and tirelessly stays on Barrault’s trail, without putting him under arrest --- convinced he's the murderer --- waiting for the moment when he feels Barrault will break under the strain of his own religious fanaticism.

DVD-R is in French with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 80 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
