The Innocents/Les Innocentes
Set at the end of the Second World War in Poland, this sensitive and emotionally resonate drama is centered on Mathilde, a young French Red Cross doctor, who comes to the aid of a group of nuns, many of whom have been impregnated by rampaging Soviet soldiers. Based on real events, Fontaine explores this fraught situation with great humanity and sensitivity. Mathilde protects the nuns not only from further attacks but also from the convents hierarchy who wish to conceal the scandal at all costs. The Innocents is an emotional layered, tender and insightful drama. The complexities of trauma and shame are deftly and sensitively handled through the prism of faith, humanism, compassion and acceptance.
