The Song of Bernadette

Henry King USA, 1943

Matthew Quetzal's rating of the film Das Lied von Bernadette

One of the most profoundly moving films depicting the purity of faith you'll ever see. Jennifer Jones is a revelation in this role, and it's a privilege to witness such a performance in history. I will just single out one shot late in the film when she's left alone in a very tiny room to begin her new life of piety. The realization of her destiny hits her, and it's transcendent as she overflows, a Dreyer-like moment.
