Diary of a Country PriestPG
A young priest arrives in a country village in Northern France to attend to his first parish. However, the hostility of the locals and increasing discomfort caused by a stomach illness leads to an unshakeable crisis of faith. With his fourth film, Robert Bresson began to implement his filmmaking philosophy by using non-professional actors and adopting a purer and more minimalist approach to storytelling.
‘The full scope of the film’s brilliance hits you with the force of a knockout punch.’
Keith Uhlich, Time Out
‘Bresson’s cinematographic tour de force is still incredibly impressive and affecting.’
David Parkinson, Empire Magazine

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
