The story is about how the life of a young girl named Mouchette with a dying mother and an alcoholic father changed after she got involved in the conflict between a poacher and a rural policeman.
Liked the opening scene that summarized the whole film! Great acting and excellent mud slinging skills by Mouchette! The ending sequence made a lot more sense to me now as I have seen the clip in another film prior to this.
