I watched a part of this foreign film on the TV last year. I can't recall what the name is, and I've been trying to figure out what it was for a few days now to no avail. The language was either French or Italian (my memory isn't the best). I want to lean more towards French as I think I remember seeing the name Pierre (either an actor or character) attached to the information of the film that I saw on the guide. All I can really remember about the movie is that this man was in this apartment/hotel at some point and a priest (I think) was talking to him. The man had a best friend who was an alcoholic, and at some point during the movie, he had drank so much that he was in some barn, passed out. The man trekked through the snow to get him because his wife was giving birth to his child. Earlier in the film, he was in a wooded area, talking to his friend's wife about him. Does anyone know what this film is named?

Sounds a bit like Tree of Wooden Clogs. 

@Gershwin fan: Not quite. I can't remember all too well, but I want to say that the film was made between the 1930s and 1960s (The Tree of Wooden Clogs was made in the late '70s). If it helps, I think I remember a nun being present during the film, probably near the childbirth. Though, my mind is foggy on the details.

From the conversation in the woods & the snow trek references, I'm thinking that it may be Le beau Serge (1958).
