One of the most breath-taking and emotional works of French cinema returns to the big screen, with a glorious new digital restoration.

Nouvelle Vague icon Anna Karina stars as Suzanne, a young woman forced against her will to take vows as a nun, in a film that was highly controversial at the time of its initial release in France due to its portrayal of life within the church.

Based on the book of the same name by Denis Diderot and following on from an earlier stage adaptation produced by Jean-Luc Godard which also starred Karina to great acclaim, this is a perfect opportunity to discover one of the lesser-known works of the French New Wave.
