Cordélia is a 1980 Canadian French language film based on the book La lampe dans la fenêtre by Pauline Cadieux. It was directed and written by Jean Beaudin.


Set in a village in the 1890s, a woman (Viau) whose husband is away invites men into her home. This action offends the conservative villagers. One of the men who was invited in is found dead and the woman is suspected and judged for her immoral act rather than the crime of murder she may have committed.
