Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jocelyn was inspired by the Lamartine poem of the same name. Played by Jean Desailly, the title character is a 16th-century divinity student who is forced to hide from the authorities. He befriends a young boy, and before long the two have sworn eternal loyalty and fidelity. It comes as quite a shock, then, when Jocelyn discovers that his faithful chum is actually a girl (Simone Valerie). Can he remain loyal to his religious vows with such a beautiful young creature in such close proximity? A bit stilted at times, Jocelyn works best during its exterior sequences, attractively lensed in the French mountain regions.
