Dir: Anne Fontaine | France/Poland | 1954 | 115 mins | French/Polish/Russian w/Eng ST
Cast | Lou de Laâge, Vincent Macaigne, Agata Kulesza, Agata Buzek
The luminous, piercing new drama by Coco Before Chanel director Anne Fontaine is based on a haunting true story and set in a convent in a ravaged Poland at the end of WWII. Mathilde (Lou de Laâge), a young French Red Cross doctor is sent to help concentration camp survivors outside Warsaw. Visiting a nearby convent, she makes a disquieting discovery about what happened to its nuns during the war, and is begged to help them, while hiding this new commitment from her boss. Provoking comparisons to Pawel Pawlikowski's Oscar-winning Ida, Fontaine's film is immensely moving and full of grace.
