Bellman was based on the novel Horseman of Riouclare by Claude Boncompain. Lucien Coedel stars in this steadily-paced melodrama as an alpine bell-ringer. His job is to toll the village bells in order to prevent strangers from getting lost in the snowy peaks. Somewhere along the line, Coedel snaps, and begins abusing his position in order to murder tourists and passersby. The Bellman was originally released in France as Sortileges.
