Living in the spiritual world.
27 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was expecting much from this movie:the subject,for a change ,gets off the beaten track:a nun is to take her vows and her family has come to say her goodbye before she leaves the material world.

A subject which was nothing but derivative,but as for the treatment.... A family made of cardboard characters ,who overplay,the mother who mistakes sugar for salt,a hysterical arty sister who does not find her way in life,the future sister's former lover ,a long-haired stupefied neo-hippie,the uncle who is afraid of cows(or is it a bull?),the naughty children ,and the guinea-pigs to boot. What's downright embarrassing is the complete lack of a spiritual dimension ;a gratuitous scene in slow motion (the little girl falling down from a tree)and a prologue dealing with the bees (and the grandma gets back to the point with her granddaughter ,telling her they are endangered species and it will be a tragedy for the earth )....Well certainly so,but the connection with monastic life escapes me,I fear...

Icing on this stodgy cake -as indigestible as mom's-: the final scenes with the three girls taking their vows:one can understand,for sure,why Marie wants to become a nun:this family is really a nuisance to live with at home!
