Forbidden Priests (Prêtres interdits) is a French film directed by Denys de La Patellière in 1973 starring Robert Hossein and Claude Jade.


This French melodrama tells the tragic story of a rare couple: Priest Jean (Robert Hossein), who falls in love with a young woman, the 17-year-old girl Françoise (Claude Jade was 25 during the shooting), has relations with her, and gets her pregnant. That happens during World War II. Some years later Françoise waits for her majority to get her child out from the orphanage and Jean becomes a communist.
