Bizarre black comedy about 15th-century Paris lawyer Richard Courtois (Firth) who decides to ply his trade in the country, only to find things stranger than he can imagine.

There’s religion and superstition, there’s power struggles, there’s ignorance versus knowledge–things sound very modern indeed.
