As the credits rolled I was both bamboozled and disappointed. I suspect you will be too.

I didn't like the movie enough to wonder about it too long.

Ultimately seems just as calculated and mechanical a pose as Dumont's previous efforts.

Dumont suppresses any information that could bring any of his stick-figure characters to life; he seems to be offering lessons about fanaticism, wealth, power, poverty, and politics, but is merely drawing connections by numbers.

Eye for Film

For a film about the brimming over of one girl's emotional fervour, it does surprisingly little to elicit a 'gut response' from the audience.

You either go with Dumont's arrogant series of conundrums and paradoxes or - as I do - you see them as mere meaningless 'effects' with little rhyme and no reason.

Though Dumont sets a painstakingly slow pace, CÚline's story feels maddeningly incomplete, and vague both in theological and psychological terms

The film never takes us in far enough.

Prairie Miller

Religious obsession meets raging teen hormones and an irrepressible desire for a date with the deity. And not always with dramatic clarity, while decidedly on the pathological when not celibate kooky erotic side.

With Hadewijch, [Dumont] endorses something like the Dardenne brothers' rugged, squalid secular humanism, offering the barrier-breaking embrace as vague alternative to Despair, Church, or Capital.

An austere and powerful French film about the dangers of religious zealotry and the mysteries of divine grace.

Dumont, as if trying to make sure nobody wants to see his movie, named it after a female Flemish poet from the 13th century, but - please read the rest of this sentence - the movie is set in modern times.

An austere, deeply questioning examination of a devout young woman having an intense crisis of faith.

Dumont's patient, suggestive approach transcends mere provocation: this is a film about absence with some real weight to it.

Hadewijch is a thoughtful piece of raw, austere filmmaking, catering specifically for those interested in serious and adventurous cinema.

Observer [UK]

Dumont's elliptical movie is as stiff as an over-starched wimple and rather tedious, but like earlier films of his it has something that sticks in the mind like the hook in a fish's mouth.

The opaque Sokolowski is a real discovery, and this mysterious film builds to its climactic act of salvation...
