Description

Hope and horror are commingled to quietly moving effect in this restrained but cumulatively powerful French-Polish drama about the various crises of faith that emerge when a house of God is ravaged by war. Based on the little-known case of the French Red Cross doctor Madeleine Pauliac and the convent to which she ministered following the end of WWII, director Anne Fontaine’s finest film in years is notable for the tact, intelligence and fine-grained character detail with which it examines every moral crevice of an unthinkable scenario.


Press

"Anne Fontaine's finest film in years observes the crises of faith that emerge in a war-ravaged Polish convent." - Variety
