User Reviews: Hello Folks! I have looked for this movie for quite a while. I watched the movie just about the time I was reaching puberty, at the local "passion pit" aka: The Roseville show. But this particular time I was alone and not sitting in the last row of the balcony. It touched me on the deepest level, and I always thought of it since that first viewing. Now I’m 63, and the movie still haunts me. So, I rate it in my personal "Top Ten" movies. I hope others take the time to see it. Perhaps others will view it. The Story line just blows me away! It begins with Anna falling in love with a soldier during the war, and a passionate love affair begins in the midst of crisis. As the relationship turns into deep love, the soldier gets reassigned. Anna is in crisis after her lover leaves. She is severely depressed and becomes a "loose woman" and begins Carousing, Drinking etc. after she receives word that her true love has been killed in action. Given this news, she decides to enter the Catholic convent to atone for her sinful past. Well I’ve already told to much but This website insists on at least 10 lines. O will tell no more, hope I have piqued the interest of another Romantic to watch this B&W 1951 epic, but I will not reveal the ending. So I hope this is enough to fulfill the requirements. Thanks for reading my ramblings Love to all. [email protected] feel free to share your impressions with me.
