Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
LES ANGES DU PECHE
Dir: Robert Bresson
Adapted by Jean Giraudoux from a Diderot novel, LES ANGES DU PECHE is a thriller in both the spiritual and the more traditional suspenseful sense - as well as being a magnificent example of that little recognized subgenre, the “nun movie.” A pampered young woman (Renee Faure) enters a Dominican convent and dedicates herself to saving a bitter, self-hating delinquent with a murderous heart (Jany Holt). As with many of Bresson’s subsequent characters, the nun’s search for salvation through sacrifice becomes a kind of Calvary, ending in humiliation, death and redemption. In French with English subtitles.
