The film"s page

Marie, the daughter of a garage owner, is with child yet still a virgin. Her genuine sincerity finally overcomes Joseph's jealousy. A few fleeting glimpses of the young woman's bare body are his sole consolation. After venting her rebellious anger against God, Marie agrees to bear the holy infant and gives birth to Jesus, a rather boisterous child. A cinematographic poem of overpowering beauty.
