François Maistre in The Milky Way

The Milky Way

1969 PG

In this satiric French comedy, two men (Paul Frankeur and Laurent Terzieff) on a spiritual pilgrimage find their faith put to the test by the zealots and apostates they meet along the way. Bernard Verley and Edith Scob provide first-rate support as director Luis Buñuel -- with his trademark absurdist touches on full display -- lampoons his favorite targets: organized religion in general and Catholicism in particular.
