Hadewijch is a 2009 French film directed by Bruno Dumont. It won the International Film Critics' award at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.[3]


Hadewijch (Julie Sokolowski), a young novice Sister, is a fanatic Christian making herself suffer by fasting and standing in the winter rain. The Mother Superior (Brigitte Mayeux-Clergot) expels her deeming her blind faith dangerous. She becomes Céline again, daughter of a Parisian diplomat. She meets a young man named Yassine (played by Yassine Salim), but tells him that she cannot fall in love with him because she is in love with Jesus; she is still a virgin and planning to stay that way.
