In eighteenth century France, novice Suzanne (Anna Karina) is compelled to take her vows and become a nun. As she does what she can to resist, Suzanne is shuttled between convents with widely different Mothers Superior, ranging from maternal to sadistic to amorous. Based on the novel by Denis Diderot, Rivette's film was banned at its initial release and became the scandal du jour.
