Mother Joan Of The Angels

Mother Joan Of The Angels

Synopsis

One of the landmarks of Polish cinema, this film is based on the documented story of the "possession" of a group of nuns that led to the burning of a priest at the stake in Loudun, France in 1634. Mother Joan of the Angels is a spare, visually rigorous, and profoundly disturbing exploration of faith, repression, fanaticism, and Eros.
