Vision - Aus dem Leben der Hildegard von Bingen

Margarethe von Trotta Germany, 2009

ramosbarajas's rating of the film Vision

Hildegard was definitely an interesting woman, but as this film tries to convey all of her life, the effect is diluted. The story is unfocused, and while there are some nice moments, it would have worked better if it did not try to tell such a large story. A more compact one, like building her own cloister would have worked better. But the production design is nice, and it's interesting to see the middle ages. 3/5.
