Time Out

Those undergoing some similar Catholic ferment might tune into its wavelength, otherwise it's a film to be admired from without, though swathes of choral music (an ill-advised Viscontian foray into Mahler excepted) convey a haunting, sepulchral vibe.

After promising much, it leads nowhere, either emotionally or spiritually.

Absorbs for most of its two hours, only losing conviction in an underwhelming sign-off.

Superbly shot in the white-walled no-man's-land of the monastery.

Beautifully shot yet distant.

Empire Magazine

Brilliantly conveying the enormity of surrendering the self, this is a religious film with universal relevance.

The imposing setting of the seminary is integral to the power of In Memory Of Me.

It flirts with being a better film than it really is, but never convinces.
