The Song of Bernadette

5 years ago at Nov 7 21:29
On the one hand, The Song of Bernadette is far too long and meandering for its own good, one the other hand, it’s one of the few films that tackle faith and devout belief with kindness and solemn respect. Perhaps it’s a bit too solemn though, as Bernadette can feel an awfully lot like a proselytized screed. Even worse is a persistent thrum of the film working as blatant and open Oscar bait, as... read more
View all The Song of Bernadette reviews
In 1858 France, Bernadette, an adolescent peasant girl, has a vision of "a beautiful lady" in the city dump. She never claims it to be anything other than this, but the townspeople all assume it to be the virgin Mary. The pompous government officials think she is nuts, and do their best to suppress the girl and her followers, and the church wants nothing to do with the whole matter. But as Bernadette attracts wider and wider attention, the phenomenon overtakes everyone in the the town, and transforms their lives.

"Lourdesissa 1800-luvun puolivälissä simppeli maalaistyttö Bernadette kohtaa kaatopaikalla näyssä Neitsyt Maarian ja siitähän soppa sukeutuu. Selznickin rooliin groomaama (suom. sukia, tampata, ehostaa) typerysmäinen Jennifer Jones sopii erinomaisesti typerysmäiseen nimirooliin. Bernadetten laulu oli positiviinen yllättäjä. Ennalta hengenahdistusta aiheuttanut kahden ja puolen tunnin kesto selittyy sillä, että pääpaino ei ole teinitytön uskonnollisessa hurmiossa, vaan yhteiskunn"

The Song of Bernadette

“On the one hand, The Song of Bernadette is far too long and meandering for its own good, one the other hand, it’s one of the few films that tackle faith and devout belief with kindness and solemn respect. Perhaps it’s a bit too solemn though, as Bernadette can feel an awfully lot like a proselytized screed. Even worse is a persistent thrum of the film working as blatant and open Oscar bait, as if it were daring the Academy to not reward it for the sentimental treatment of its story.   What saves The Song of Bernadette from folding under its own weight is the strength of Jennifer Jones’ leading performance. This is an interior performance built from the inside out, and it would be easy to exclaim mystification over her Oscar win for such a quiet performance. Yet for all of her gui” read more
