Movie Info

This French historical drama is a retelling of the story of St. Bernadette, the young 19th-century girl who was ostracized and persecuted after she saw a vision of the Virgin Mary at Lourdes. Though she became a popular folk figure, the local politicians attempt to commit her to an asylum.

Critic Reviews for The Passion of Bernadette

All Critics (1)

Straightforward, unembellished account that eschews the Hollywood sentiment of Song of Bernadette and speculative psychology of Cavalier's Thérèse.
