Initially banned by the French government, this brilliant adaptation of Diderot's classic 18th century novel explores the moving tale of Suzanne Simonin (Anna Karina, in perhaps her finest screen performance), a 16-year-old girl who is forced by her parents to enter a convent against her will. Unable to bear the hypocrisy and oppression which characterize her new life, Suzanne becomes desperate for freedom. Her attempts first land her in another convent, which, though quite different, is equally constraining. In French with English subtitles. Jacques Rivette---France---1966---155 mins.
