Taking its name from a thirteenth-century mystic, ‘Hadewijch’ presents the spiritual journey of Céline (Julie Sokolowski), a young novice nun who is expelled because of her overzealous faith, and sent back into the world by her mother superior. As she returns to live with her parents in a sumptuous Parisian apartment, Hadewijch once again becomes Céline, the daughter of a French minister. Céline's passionate love of God and her unease with her haute-bourgeois parents, combined with her encounter with Yassine, a volatile but fun-loving Arab boy, and his devout brother Nassir, finds her treading a precarious line between grace and madness. It’s an extraordinary high-wire act for director Bruno Dumont and lead actor Sokolowski – all the more impressive for how they succeed. ★★★★ "Mysterious and unsettling" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
