Our Father, the Devil is an ethical and psychological thriller about Marie (Babetida Sadjo), an African refugee working as the head chef at a retirement home in small-town France whose quiet existence is upended by the arrival of Father Patrick (Souleymane Sy Savané), a charismatic priest with whom she’s convinced she shares a heavy past in her homeland. Marie must now confirm his identity and decide if settling an old score is worth sacrificing the new life she’s built. The film dissects the emotional complexities of trauma, power, guilt, catharsis, and the devils hiding within us all.
