As the Germans take over France during World War II, widowed mother Barny becomes increasingly anxious about her half-Jewish daughter. She decides to hide the girl on a nearby farm and have her baptized as a cover. The ceremony reminds Barny of the absurdity of religion, and inspires her to pick a fight with parish priest Léon. She's surprised to learn that he shares a great many of her views, and the two begin a chaste yet deep relationship. Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Emmanuelle Riva, Irène Tunc, Howard Vernon, and Patricia Gozzi. Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville.
