Back To Normandy (2007)

  
Format:  Back To Normandy DVD 
 
 
A Normandy peasant's gruesome act of murder in the 19th century and a 1976 film made by French director Rene Allio about that crime serve as the springboards for this riveting documentary. Filmmaker Nicolas Philibert (the assistant director for Allio's movie) returns to the countryside locations he scouted decades earlier to revisit the story, the cast, and some bizarre parallels between the past and the present. 113 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: French; Subtitles: English. In French with English subtitles.
