The Awakening is a minor-league Canadian "art" film, ideally suited for the Espresso crowd. Jacques Riberolles and Louise Marceau star as a priest and nun, respectively. The priest suffers from erotic dreams, while the nun yearns for physical fulfillment. Both renounce their vows and leave their village, only to bump into each other months later. Now fully able to consummate their love, Riberolles and Marceau are still racked by guilt. The original title of The Awakening was the more appropriate L'Amour Humain.
