(Produced in 1972 w/ English overdubs - Option for original French language w/ English subtitles available) The notary, also the village pervert, needs to get married so as to quench the rumors about his taste for orgies and lusty behavior. He shows great interest in Evelyne who succumbs to his advances, irresistibly attracted to his fortune. But she also entertains a relationship with a lesbian who doesn't accept the situation. Directly inspired by a true story which took place in Bruay-en-Artois, this extravagant painting of a typical country village and of post-1968 morals blends erotic imagery and human drama to perfection. The movie's sensitive subject caused Jean-Marie Pallardy serious judiciary problems.
