Vision - Aus dem Leben der Hildegard von Bingen

Margarethe von Trotta Germany, 2009

Loz Loory's rating of the film Vision

Almost 1,000 years later and the Church has reaffirmed that women do not belong in positions of power. A sad state. Enjoyed this as an introduction to Hildegarde, and thought the cinematography did a good job of livening up the cloister shots. Would have been great to incorporate more of her music, but enjoyed the pacing and feel of this film nevertheless.
