The Innocents


Anne Fontaine

2016, 1 h 55 min
Poland, winter 1945. A very young doctor, Mathilde Beaulieu, works
at a hospital of the French Red Cross which is to find, cure and
repatriate French citizens saved from German camps. A nun from a convent
a few kilometres away appears at the hospital begging for help for a
dying woman. The problem is a nun in
labour… It turns out that
the nuns were mass raped by Red Army soldiers. The nun asks Mathilda if
she could come to the convent in secret. The Mother Superior wishes to
avoid scandal at any cost.
