In my opinion Léon Morin, Priest is one of the most impressive films. It's hard to find a movie done this well. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. Léon Morin, Priest filled me with difficult to explain energy got me so immersed in it. Every single performance is incredible. Not to mention that it has the best music in a movie. Great actors and great story. However, I think that well-chosen actors and an interesting script are not pushed to the background by music, because a good movie consists of many great parts.
