The film score was by Georges Auric.

It was the film chosen to be shown at the opening gala of the Cameo cinema in Edinburgh, Scotland, in Marchand a rare surviving print with English subtitles was shown there again in to celebrate the film’s 60th pastorxle, courtesy of the BFI.

To his chagrin, his adopted son, Jacques, is also in love with Gertrude, even though psatorale is shortly to be married to another woman. Unable to accept Jacques’ love and disappointed by the pastor’s affections for her, she realises that her former happiness has been lost forever.

This film supplies a second, deeper meaning. The blind girl comes symphoni dominate the pastor’s consciousness as he guides her from being the brutish creature seen in our first glimpse of her, into an accomplished and attractive young woman.

His obsession with her damages his family life. There is no indication of carnal attraction between the pastor and her; she is his spiritual creation.

This alternative interpretation, then, is that the blind girl is a kind of demon as suggested by her first appearance who takes over his consciousness, with the result of wrecking his family life and marring his surface saintliness. This meaning is cued for us by his wife’s slowly growing worry.
