La religieuse (The Nun) Reviews

Nigel Andrews
Financial Times

Pauline Etienne as the heroine is a harmonising centre, believable, luminous, quiet-spoken, poignant.

Observer [UK]

It's an affecting and frank take on the loneliness of faith as well as faithlessness, whose horrors come in odd contrast to the plush production values.

Trevor Johnston
Radio Times

It's a generally classy yet dramatically underpowered affair traversing a steady path between respectable costume drama and habit-lifting exploitation.

Eye for Film

Guillaume Nicloux has, alongside Jérôme Beaujour, crafted a stately and atmospheric adaptation of Denis Diderot's novel, which is driven onwards by a powerful central female performance.

Matthew Turner

With impressive production design and a strong script, this is an engaging, well made French period drama anchored by a superb performance from Pauline Etienne, though the tone wobbles in the final act and the ending is curiously abrupt.

Henry Barnes

This is dark but comedic, with plenty of frills beneath the habit.

Measured and sensible, The Nun lacks the full-on claustrophobic horror of a film like The Magdalene Sisters and moves through events at a matter-of-fact distance.

Total Film

Though Etienne and Huppert are fantastic, Guillaume Nicloux's adaptation of Denis Diderot's novel is neither nunsploitation nor chamber piece, just about working as a sermon on hypocrisy.

Reeling Reviews

Nicloux escalates Suzanne's travails at just the right pace, wrestling his final act back from "The Perils of Pauline" territory to conclude with an shocking suggestion which brings the material's themes back to the forefront.

This is London

Looks as tasteful as can be but, in terms of emotion, lacks any kind of finesse.

Little White Lies

This Isabelle Huppert drama starts promisingly, but sadly reveals itself as a piece of hackneyed nunsploitation.

Empire Magazine

A strangely drab adaptation of Diderot's much racier novel.
