Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this satirical French comedy, Rosemunde (Annie Girardot) earns her living selling relics to the Catholic church. She manufactures them using a specialized machine made by her grandfather, which transforms corpses into bone. Needless to say, since she must have dead bodies in order to do this, the police take an interest in her affairs. In order to fend off their inquiries, she concocts a scheme using a hippyish Jesus-cultist, who is a dead-ringer for conventional notions of how Jesus looked. To everyone's surprise, he has some supernatural gifts of his own.
