Yves Massard is Un Missionaire in this inspirational drama. Consumed by wanderlust, novice missionary Massard ventures into the wilds of French colonial Africa. Here he is taken under the wing of mission founder Charles Vanel, who is somewhat wiser in the ways of his chosen profession than the headstrong Massard. The two men form a strong bond, which serves to strengthen the younger man's faith and upgrade the older man's jaundiced opinion of Mankind. Un Missionaire was directed by Maurice Cloche, who also helmed the successful religious epic Monsieur Vincent (1946).
