Details

From the director of Coco Before Chanel comes a spiritually and emotionally complex drama starring Lou de Laâge (Respire) and Agata Kulesza (Ida). Set in Poland at the end of World War II the story follows Mathilde Beaulieu, a young Red Cross doctor who is sent to help war survivors. When a Benedictine nun from a neighbouring convent comes to find Mathilde, pleading for her help, Mathilde discovers several heavily pregnant nuns, petrified by fear and shame.
Stunningly shot in the mostly confined spaces of a snow-covered convent, this is a poignant story of birth and rebirth, shattered faith and female solidarity, performed by an impeccable cast.
