    • Synopsis
    • Jean-Marie Bigard, France's top stand-up comedian, writes and stars
      in this snappy comedy about an ex-convict on an offbeat road to
      redemption.
      With the help of his brother, a priest, Mario the gangster becomes
      Father Mario to escape his former associates and is welcomed like
      the Messiah in a quiet village lost in the French countryside. Of course, Mario's arrival soon livens the place up.
      Comic Jean-Marie Bigard brings rugged credibility and impeccably
      deadpan comic timing to the role of Mario, while, as his saintly brother Patrick, Doudi Strajmayster (the cross-dressing star of hit TV series Samantha) hilariously falls foul of all kinds of delicious temptations.
      Set in the beautiful Ardèche region of southern France, HALLELUJAH! is a smart rural comedy with big-city panache.
