Don't hesitate, if you like Hepburn, buy it.

Is there a film out there with more women actors in it?
Hepburn is just tremendous in this film.
Don't be fooled, this is not a film about Nuns, rather this is a film about a young women who happens to become a nun and then struggles at great length with her place in the world and her spiritual beliefs.
Peter Finch gives a very fine performance in the main supporting role.
The settings of pre war Belgium and the Congo help make this film the true classic that it is.
Excellant production values and quality. When I first saw it, in the year of its release, on the largest cinema screen in Europe it was truly amazing. Nonetheless this is still a great film even on DVD.
