“Queen of the New Wave returns…” click here for press

This year the ICO re-releases one of the most breath-taking and emotional works of French cinema. Jacques Rivette’s exquisite 1966 drama The Nun appears now in a glorious new 4K digital restoration, ready for cinema audiences to revisit or discover for the first time in 2018.

Nouvelle Vague icon Anna Karina is 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, The Nun was a work that took Rivette many years to realise. This is a great opportunity for new audiences to engage with an iconic but lesser-known work of the 20th century.

Peter Bradshaw, Guardian review

“A welcome re-release of Jacques Rivette’s second feature, a ferocious and lightly erotic takedown of organised religion” ★★★★
David Jenkins, Little White Lies review

“Bleak, strong and voluptuously austere” ★★★★
Nigel Andrews, Financial Times review

“Full of anarchic fun” ★★★★
Filmuforia review

“Startling and serious intent […] played with rock star swagger by Anna Karina” ★★★
Kevin Maher, The Times review

“A gorgeous restoration […] an austere, elegant adaptation of its satirical source (with) a passionate central performance from Karina”
Pamela Hutchinson, Guardian feature ‘Twisted sisters: why the film world loves nuns’
