(Ipswich Film Theatre)
In 1960s Poland a novice nun about to take her vows discovers that her family were Jewish but were mostly wiped out during the Nazi occupation, and she contemplates whether to live a secular life.
Moving, powerful and beautiful to look at study of an innocent trying to cope in a harsh world, with excellent use of the edges of the frame to convey suppressed human emotion.
