France – 2009 – 90 mn
D’après un roman de SYLVIA TOWNSEND WARNER (ed. Gallimard)
REALISATEUR: Philippe Venault
PRODUCTION: Mascaret films (France)
PRODUCTION EXECUTIVE: Tahiti Nui Companies (Polynésie française)

The young missionary priest Vincent Fortune has faith. The type of faith that is pure and whole, both childish and thoughtful, which can move mountains. So to convert a group of Pacific ‘natives’ on an island lost in the Southern Seas, seems almost too easy to him…Over there, all that it requires is to take hold of the souls in the way that wild flowers are picked. He really has no doubts to what he has solemnly promised to his hierarchy: that in one year he will have converted at least twenty! That’s the minimum! If not, he will leave the church!

He only converts one young man. He becomes too dangerously fascinated by this innocent and happy population which lives in harmony with nature and rejects Western values…then he finally discovers that his unique convert isn’t one at all as he has secretly kept the religion of his idols! The disaster will be complete when he loses faith in his own God…to the point where he himself carves a wooden idol to offer to his young protégé, who lost his whilst saving his life during the night of a huge earthquake. Since this, ‘his child’ Matahi has been dying from heartache. Yes, he will carve this idol himself! To save him! Vincent returns to Europe defeated and alone, having lost faith in his God, in his world and in his values…until the dawn of the first world conflict.
