Shallow, Dull, Boring, Messy and Overrated
8 May 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The aspirant nun Céline vel Hadewijch (Julie Sokolowski) is invited to leave the convent where she studies and she returns to the house of her mother in Paris. Céline meets her outcast Muslim teenage friend Yassine Chikh (Yassine Salime) on the streets and they hang around together. Céline tells that he is only his friend since she is committed with God and will stay virgin since her body belongs to God.

Yassine introduces Céline to his older brother and religious leader Nassir Chikh (Karl Sarafidis) and he invites the teenage girl to participate in his religious seminars. However, Nassir is actually a terrorist and the confused Céline is the perfect tool for his cell.

"Hadewijch" is a shallow, dull, boring, messy and overrated French movie and I was completely disappointed after watching it. Shallow and dull since there is no explanation why the Catholic Céline is capable of a terrorist act in her quest for God. Boring since the low pace seems to be used due to the lack of story or substance. Messy since the situations are confused with the used of ellipsis and flashbacks in the screenplay. Overrated since the director Bruno Dumont may have friends and followers that have given unfair high ratings for "Hadewijch". And I was lured by the IMDb User Rating. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "O Pecado de Hadewijch" ("The Sin of Hadewijch")
