The Innocents ( Les Innocentes ) is a masterful look at how our experiences shape and change us. Set in a Polish convent near the end of WWII, this powerful exploration of a nearly forgotten but presumably often occurrence makes that point unequivocally.

With the snow falling gently, Saint Basil's Cathedral looks like a giant wedding cake covered in icing. Another place one should certainly visit is Novodevichy Convent with its lacelike towers and golden domes. When surrounded by snow, it resembles a fairy-tale castle of a beautiful princess.

At the end of 1945, in Russian-occupied Poland, a young intern came to the aid of nuns. A shocking film.

In Poland , in a convent, the prayers of the nuns are disturbed by the cries of a woman.

It is December 1945. A young sister goes to seek help in a French Red Cross field hospital . Unfortunately, he was told that we were only dealing with the French wounded.

Mathilde Beaulieu, young intern, will follow the young sister. In one room, she discovers that a young nun is ready to give birth.

Inspired by a diary

Used to changing the register, we owe her in particular Coco before Chanel, the director Anne Fontaine here seizes a very sensitive historical drama inspired by the diary of Madeleine Pauliac, doctor-lieutenant of the Red Cross, resistant.

While taking a vow of chastity, sisters are raped by Red Army soldiers in occupied Poland. These nuns, these women, are confronted with shame, dishonor, guilt. What about faith in all of this? And will God help them?

In this hymn to life, Lou de Laage (Mathilde) is sublime. The light and muted colors of the film add both beauty and tension.

On Arte, at 8:55 p.m.

"So it was just very difficult for us.
