It writhes with almost uncontainable surges of anger, lust, and distress.
A great film that remains one of the cornerstones of the French New Wave.
The French censors banned the film for over a year, thus generating both notoriety and goodwill, neither justified.
A beautiful, calm, austere movie that somehow manages to be remarkably faithful to the original, yet quite different in tone.
Rivette suggests that these institutions, even when their stated purposes are humble and charitable, exist first and foremost to prop each other up and form a monolith against individuals.
Neither La Religieuse nor its main character is ultimately able to see a way out of alienated individualism.
Don't be fooled by its reputation. The Nun isn't here for shock value, but tune in to its drama and you'll find an interesting film helped by a strong central performance.
A deeply, almost unreadably strange story.
A minutely calibrated and tragic performance from Anna Karina.
Rivette, faithfully perambulating his eighteenth century cloisters, can't quite liberate his notional nun from the printed page.
A riveting religious drama set in 18th-century France which casts French New Wave favorite Karina as a young nun forced into the convent for financial reasons.
A garish potboiler first and a harsh critique of religious institutions last.
