Once again, I am disappointed how little people have seen this marvelous film. I think it is because the main character is a nun. And how attractive is that? But aren't you interested about the story of a smart, modern woman, who chooses to flee in a convent? And don't you want to know what happens if she has to leave?
I must say it is the best role I saw Kristin Scott Thomas play ever. You really feel why she makes her decisions. Only by acting, without spelling it out, this movie makes you understand the behaving of several people. And that is real Art.
It's one of the movies you will be thinking of for days. And every time you see Kristin, or hear someone talk about her, you relive the moments this movie showed you.
