This is a good film but the topic depicted in it is far from being pleasant. The story of a poor unfortunate girl forced to enter a convent where she is heavily pressure to become a nun and take the veil. Suzanne is being tortured and treated like a disgrace once she starts to question the method of her superior. This is a film about a woman trying to resit the religious values imposed on her and her long fight to gain freedom. It's not going to be the cup of tea of every spectator but the film manages some great images and possess a form of authenticity that makes it definitely interesting. The main actress is really intense which helps making this story all the more compelling.
As an ex-Catholic, educated in Parochial Schools and an altar boy, rebellious at an early age, I am only too familiar with the guilt and unworthiness
feelings so brilliantly portrayed by Suzanne. Marvelous actress.
Potent study of oppression and cruelty ultimately defeated by faith. Pauline Etienne gives an outstanding turn in the lead role and Huppert is given a chance to play a nun! ...of course transgression ensues.
Bullies happening in convents... rather pale however.
Basada en la novela de Diderot, "La Religiosa" es una cinta atmosférica, macabra y llena de silencios que se enfoca en las penurias que debe afrontar una joven (la excelente Pauline Etienne) que no quiere ser recluída en un convento.
Lenta, sin actuaciones demasiado memorables, un drama que muestra lo corrupto de las instituciones religiosas.
Didascalico, ben fatto, quasi un documentario da morire dagli sbadigli.
It moves along briskly, but doesn't seem very interested in portraying the horror of the situation. When Isabelle Huppert's Mother Superior shows up, it even moves into blackly hilarious terrain.
Speaking of uniqueness, La religieuse offers not much over the dogmatism of Catholic Church. However, Isabelle Huppert's lustful role, which is a reprisal of her role in La Pianiste, outshines the film.
