Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of the most astonishing film debuts ever, made while France was still under Nazi occupation."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Concerns a nun, Faure, who becomes obsessed with saving the soul of a woman convict."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"the heaviness of the dialogue is balanced by Jany Holt's superbly understated performance as the prisoner -- a performance that looks forward to the invisible acting style of Bresson's mature work."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Robert Bresson's first feature, Les Anges du péché is a fascinating film, both intrinsically and in its relation to the rest of Bresson's oeuvre."
‑ Erik Ulman, Senses of Cinema
"The two-way street between convent and prison, the ideal place for Robert Bresson to found his themes and images"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Robert Bresson's first full-length feature is an auspicious minimalist one."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
