In 1905, French seminarian Bruno Reidel is found guilty of murdering a child. At the request of the doctors observing him, he writes his memoirs to explain his action.
Chilling, disturbing, the true face of horror. Not for all audiences, not destined to be a blockbuster, you think of Robert Bresson cinema, very raw, austere, shorn, the true story of a young boy who became a killer. It may be seen as a documentary, about how people lived in those days, early 1900’s in the deep French countryside, and above all a deep analysis of the human nature, thru the picture of this young boy. The off voice is more than useful, disturbing, shocking, incredible to hear and believe but true. This young boy, in a class room, among his fellow eight or ten years old students, who deeply thinks about killing them, slowly and with the feeling of excitment. From a true story. I have never felt so unconfortable in my movie goer 59 years life. Never. The contrast between the quietness of the countryside charm and the nasty, unbearable, unforgettable atmosphere is purely indescribable.
