“On your right you can see the house of the famous movie A Nun’s Story with Audrey Hepburn and Peter Finch”. I have heard this line more than 50 times or so, when I do the famous canal boat ride in Bruges. I finally decided to watch the movie and it wasn’t all that bad. It’s vintage Hollywood. Audrey Hepburn is really good and they did not stay away form controversy. I’m sure some catholics were offended by the movie back in the fifties. But it does give you a good idea of what nuns had to ‘suffer’ in order to achieve their goals.
