Produced in Montreal and filmed in the French language, Le Cure de Village is a good example of doing a lot with a little. The scene is a small town, where Le Cure (Ovila Legare), the local priest, offers spiritual guidance. Commanding most of Le Cure's attention is heroine Juliette (played by Canadian radio favorite Lise Roy), who is being shut out by the parents of her boyfriend because of her questionable parentage. The situation is resolved by the arrival of Juliette's father (Paul Guevremont), whose curtain speech ties up several loose plot ends. Working with practically no budget, director Richard Jarvis has turned out a touching and compelling little film.
