I have just seen a french DVD copy of this film. It is one of the most interesting thrillers I've seen in along time. The visuals are astonishing and the dialogues are as sophisticated as you would expect from someone like Giono. The concept is fascinating: a policeman and a serial killer play cat and mouse in an isolated mountain village in Nineteenth century France.
Unlike most thrillers, there is no psychological explanation of the killer's motives, but a metaphysical, existential reflection of the nature of murder, which can be considered highly original, and at least as immoral as De Quincey's thesis. It is clear that this film was a heavy influence on Chistophe Gans' "Brotherhood of the wolf", although I would suggest that the unexpected yet totally coherent twist at the ending has been copied in many films such as Friedkin's "Cruising" francophile smart ass!

The Modern Novel
Jean Giono had a difficult war. He was a pacifist and, at the start of the war, he was imprisoned for a while. When freed, he lived in Vichy France. That his books promoted the idea of a return to the land, something that the Vichy government itself supported, further condemned him. He had also been involved with magazine called Gerbe , which was pro-Vichy. Accordingly, he was interned after liberation.
