Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Village of Wrath is the English-language title of this French costume melodrama. The hero is a city boy who moves to the country and falls in love with a gypsy girl. The local villagers regard the girl as a sorceress, and don't think much of the boy, either. Nearly driven out of town on a rail, hero and heroine eventually exonerate themselves and prove that their accusers have feet of clay. At the time the film was released, the reviewer for Variety magazine opined that Le Village de la Colere might have worked better if remade in Hollywood, but this never came to pass.
