A devout, out-of-work Haitian professional living in the Dominican Republic questions his self worth when he can’t find a new job. He moves from the city to the jungle. This gorgeous, meditative work encapsulates the plight of immigrant workers everywhere, but the saintly character of Jean Gentil seems to suffer for all of them. ”Shares a certain searching quality that marked the best of Bresson's films...Genuinely transcendent. –Time Out New York.
