Movie Info

THE PASSION OF AUGUSTINE stars Céline Bonnier as Mother Augustine, a Roman Catholic nun who teaches music in a convent school in rural Quebec in the 1960s and who is fighting to preserve her school against the backdrop of the social changes wrought by Vatican II and Quebec's Quiet Revolution. When her talented but rebellious niece joins the convent, and when the government threatens to shut down the school in favour of public education, her world is suddenly turned upside down. She and her fellow nuns are forced to confront the waves of modernity, and Mother Augustine herself must search her soul for a new calling. Can she accept her past in order to move forward? Or will she perish with tradition?

Audience Reviews for The Passion Of Augustine (La Passion D'augustine)


In French Canada a nun fights to save the music school for girls that she runs, threatened by changing times and thinking. An intimate portrait as we get to see how the women who have given up the world dote on their students. Lots of good music too.
