Jacques Rivette’s 1968 film inspired controversy in France even before its release: a film about a nun sadistically tortured in a religious convent, based on an 18th-century Diderot novella. Starring French New Wave idol Anna Karina in one of her most memorable performances, the film, now in its restored version, is a breathtaking cinematic work whose themes of personal freedom and resistance to an oppressive society are as relevant now as in its year of release.
