"John Huston signs a film of exceptional originality and brilliance." THE WORLD
Backfrom the army, Hazel Motes finds her abandoned family home and decides to leave for the city to do “things he has never done before”. He meets Asa Hawks, a rogue preacher who poses as blind. Annoyed by the imposture and perverted faith of the people he meets, Hazel decides to found a new cult: the Church without Christ...
Away from Hollywood studios, John Huston adapted Flannery O'Connor's novel Wisdom in the Blood . Crazy film, devastatingly modern, Le Malin is also the portrait of a deep America drawing its discourse from the roots of a culture based essentially on religion. Carried by the genius of Brad Dourif ( Flight over the Cuckoo's Nest ), Le Malin is a powerful and ferocious work, available for the first time on Blu-ray™.
