sadly missing from MUBI: Lilli Palmer and Sylvia Syms in "Conspiracy of Hearts" (1960)
That lovely still from Judex puts me in mind of the fashion parade in Roma.
There are plenty of nuns in Dumont's new film about Camille Claudel.
"The Penguin" in The Blues Brothers.
I'm not sure it applies, but Penelope Cruz played a nun (Hermana Rosa) in Pedro Almodóvar's ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER ...http://mubi.com/films/all-about-my-mother---
true she didn't wear her habit, and she was pregnant, fighting HIV while carrying a transvestite's baby, but to err is human . . . to forgive is . . . Almodóvar.
Ivanna (1959) - not much infor about it in English...
Saw The Trouble With Angels not so long ago. Quite a charming film .
Why am I not surprised that "nuns" would attract such a diversified list of directors from Frantisek Vlacil (a directors cup discovery for me) to Jesus Franco? Another intriguing list Kenji.
Well spotted, a must for sure
Thanks for that- useful for my Albanian list too
haha ..Evans Above...
Dear Mother Theresa had a birthday recently...
Chloë Sevigny plays a nun in 3 Needles. Yes, it happened.
Ah yes that reminds me of the guy who used to live in the top floor flat, Evans Above.
Your lists are simply heavenly. Just yesterday I was over come with emotion after a visit by Sister Wendy herself! http://imgsrv.gocomics.com/dim/?fh=6e82b161ed1853120f928f350379de03
hey kenji...i have a list similar to yours...http://mubi.com/lists/12030
here's Anna (http://mubi.com/films/25858) I doubt there is a nun more beautiful than Sylvana Mangano, and she sings too (even better than Whoopi Goldberg)
on a lighter note... CHANGE OF HABIT ('69) - William A.Graham... THE SINGING NUN ('66) - Henry Costner... but, SOEUR SOURIRE, a new film starring the Belgian actress Cécile de France that purports to tell the true story of the sixties religious pop sensation who left the convent and eventually committed suicide.
