Movie Info

This French historical drama is a retelling of the story of St. Bernadette, the young 19th-century girl who was ostracized and persecuted after she saw a vision of the Virgin Mary at Lourdes. Though she became a popular folk figure, the local politicians attempt to commit her to an asylum.

Critic Reviews for The Passion of Bernadette

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Straightforward, unembellished account that eschews the Hollywood sentiment of Song of Bernadette and speculative psychology of Cavalier's Thérèse.
