Synopsis

Jacques Rivette writes and directs this French drama based on the novel by Denis Diderot. Set in 18th century France, the film follows young Suzanne Simonin (Anna Karina) as she is forced to become a nun against her will. Mistreated by a number of her elders, Suzanne falls into a depression and attempts to get the church to absolve her vows. When this is denied, a desperate Suzanne is forced to go to extreme lengths to try and escape her bleak existence.
