The last of veteran moviemaker Marcel Carne's theatrical films, La Merveilleuse Visite was a surprisingly restrained film by one of the most colorful filmmakers in France. Jean (Gilles Kiher) stars as an angel who has fallen from heaven and landed in a picturesque French village. Nursed back to health by the local priest and his helper, he returns the favor in a surprising fashion. La Merveilleuse Visite is based on a story by H.G. Wells.
