In French with English subtitles.

Adapted by Pierre Bost and Jean Aurenche from a novel by Andre Gide, Symphonie Pastorale proved yet another box-office success for popular French filmmaker Jean Delannoy. Michelle Morgan stars as a blind orphaned girl who is adopted by kindly pastor Pierre Blancher. The pastor's paternal affection for the girl blossoms into romantic love, despite the fact that he's already married. As a form of courtship, Delannoy fills the sightless Morgan's head with visions of a "perfect" world, as harmonious as her favorite musical piece, Beethoven's Symphonie Pastorale. Delannoy's son Jean Desailly, likewise falling in love with Morgan, arranges for an operation that will restore the girl's sight. This plunges Delannoy into despair: once Morgan sees the world for herself, and not as an idyllic image conjured up by the pastor, she will be lost to him forever.

La symphonie pastorale. February 20, 2018
Reviewer: Hildegard Brosseau from Stratford, CT United States  
Top-notch print of a marvelous film from MovieDetective. I was quite overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the film. The stark simplicity of Delannoy's work give the story a natural feeling. Nothing artificial about it. On top of it this film has a dream cast. Could hardly be better. Morgan and Blanchar are excellent. Probably their best work.
