The Innocents


The Innocents

A pretty good, low key movie about some Polish nuns. WW2 ended in Europe in May of 1945. This movie is set in December 1945, 9 months after the Russians came through Poland and pushed the Germans out. Some Russian soldiers broke into this convent and had their way with the nuns. I always kind of thought that nuns were off limits, but I guess that only applies if you are a Christian. Being as those dirty commies had no God but Stalin, such prohibitions didn't apply.

The movie is based on the experiences of Madeleine Pauliac, a French Red Cross doctor who worked in Poland after World War II, dealing with the aftermath of mass rapes by Soviet soldiers.

Roger Ebert has a review, as does AnOther.
