    French-Polish film "The Innocents"



    LeBrok directed my attention to this film. It is really worth watching: brilliantly directed, filmed and acted. The Polish actresses, particularly the two "leads", are just spectacular. I've never seen a film so accurately depict the life within a convent, which is a testament both to them and to the director. Of course, the film depicts far more than that; it's a profound exploration of both faith and ethics.

    The forward says it is based on real experiences. I would love to know if the ending is true to the actual story. I have my doubts, but perhaps I've just grown too cynical.

    This is the trailer:

    One of many wonderful reviews:

    I watched this again last night. It's even more impressive the second time around.

    If you haven't seen it, I really recommend that you give it a try.

    For all the appalling subject matter, it lifts the human spirit. We are capable of wondrous things as well as horrors.
