Location of historical event one hour north of Paris, actresses Jeanne Moreau and Alida Valli confront revolution. Five stars for a fantastic film.
These are real events and real women religious who had not one moment of respite, which is a metaphor for the inner turmoil of all believing Catholics in every place and in every time.
This way of life for women must be restored everywhere. The priest in the film speaks for me and tradition-adhering Catholics: I look forward to becoming what God prepared me to be, a fugitive.
Veils are meant to hide. It hides the tabernacle, and a “glass darkly” hides our Lord’s face until we meet in eternity.
