      John Anderson America Magazine It is something of a temptation, having watched Lea Pool's "The Passion of Augustine," to say that filmmakers should be discouraged from certain subjects-religious vocation, for instance, the inherent drama of which seems unknowable for the filmmaker. . . Aug 16, 2017 Full Review Janire Zurbano Cinemanía (Spain) [Director La] Pool's revolutionary anthem sounds like Bach, Liszt and Chopin. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 3, 2018 Full Review Tara Martinez Film Inquiry At its core, The Passion of Augustine is so much more than a film about religion; It challenges archaic and often false perceptions of religious institutions. Aug 29, 2017 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice Intriguing drama about a musically gifted religious who creatively handles the many changes which come her way.

      Frans G Believable characters, beautiful singing and piano playing, moving story, beautifully filmed and acted. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/16/24 Full Review Serge L The beauty and the music in this film is rarely reached. Great music apparently with pianists and actors all in one. A pearl of a film. Adding the transformation of the church with modern times, adds another evolving narrative. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/19 Full Review kevin w In French Canada a nun fights to save the music school for girls that she runs, threatened by changing times and thinking. An intimate portrait as we get to see how the women who have given up the world dote on their students. Lots of good music too. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Un film moyen si l'on fait abstraction des anachronismes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
