Mérette is a pretty child, living within a patrician, strictly Calvinist family in the Switzerland of the 19th century. She is happy, until her mother dies, and Mérette blames God, and gives up her religion. Her family turns against her, the villagers reject her, and her priest drives her into isolation.
Movie ReviewsTragedy (in the strict sense) about what religion does to a community, and how the community deals with conflicts. Excellent acting by Anne Bos and Jean Bouise.
