Barely a week before the American Film Institute begins a small retrospective of Jean-Pierre Melville films, here’s an opportunity to see one that’s altogether atypical. Melville is known for playful films noirs, but Leon Morin, Priest is a stark, almost-Bressonian tale of a radical priest (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and a religiously inspired young woman whose spiritual quest takes place during the Nazi occupation of France. At 7 p.m. at La Maison Française, French Embassy, 4101 Reservoir Rd. NW. $5. (202) 944-6090. (MJ)
