Vi­sion: FRoM ThE liFE oF hildE­GARd Von Bin­GEn

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

Mar­garethe von Trotta’s beau­ti­fully com­posed but stiff-kneed bi­og­ra­phy of Hilde­gard von Bin­gen, the re­mark­able 12th-cen­tury nun and vi­sion­ary, has a solemn earnest­ness but doesn’t breathe enough life into its sub­ject. Bar­bara Sukowa plays the iconic Hilde­gard with power and author­ity. She hits a lot of notes. It’s just that in the con­text of this movie, they don’t re­ver­ber­ate very much. Opens Satur­day, Dec. 25. Not rated. 111 min­utes. In Ger­man with sub­ti­tles. The Screen, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards)
