  • La Vie miraculeuse de Thérèse Martin

    1929. France. Directed by Julien Duvivier. Screenplay by Julien Duvivier, Thérèse de Lisieux. With Simone Bourday, André Marnay. "The most authentic of Duvivier's religious films, this is a stark and striking biographical account of the late-nineteenth-century Carmelite nun who died at age twenty-four and was canonized. Bourday has genuine adolescent fervor as Theresa and Marnay is pathetically fine as her father. The sequence of the taking of the veil has extraordinary documentary force. The same material inspired Alain Cavalier's 1986 masterpiece Thérèse" (Lenny Borger). Silent, with piano accompaniment. Approx. 113 min.
