News & Interviews for Thérèse
Critic Reviews for Thérèse
The film's plodding, unvarnished style suggests late-period Robert Bresson -- that is, if he were shooting a commercial for the decorative glories of scrubbed wood.
It deals with profound questions of death and separation but with the slow, satisfied air of those who have all the answers.
Although decently acted and well-crafted, Thérèse is essentially an illustrated Sunday school lecture for true believers.
The do-it-yourself indie, financed through individual contributions, is too earnest and lacking in dramatic tension to cross over and preach to those not in the choir.
Audience Reviews for Thérèse
A beautiful, and true story of an incredible and pious saint. Her simple and little path was her path to Heaven. She suffered greatly from her illness, but in the end she met peace. And that is the path everybody should try to find.
So-so story, a plus is it's simplicity, a minus being that the central characted is hardly enigmatic enough to make a film about. It leans on the sappy side as well. Well meaning.
I hate this movie. I had to see it for a religious class. It had some of the worst script with an ackward feel when characters spoke. Therese's sisters all had the exact same personality. There are many random shots. Like 5 times they showed a sunset or a moon or a crucifix or grass blowing and it had nothing to do with the movement of the plot. Almost the entire movie had music put it. If it didn't have the music it would have felt all wrong and you shouldn't have to keep us interested with only the score. If they would ever show where the character were inhabiting, they would show it only from the outside and the characters would never be in the shot. The camera was at eye level 90% of the time and it was very fussy. It was supposed to be raining, but couldn't distinguish it from the blurry picture.
