Reviews

Niewinne (Agnus Dei/Les innocentes/ The Innocents) has received acclaim in Polish and international film press. "Shot in a deliberately drab, muted palette perfectly suited to the convent's plain-looking environs, Agnus Dei in some way recalls Of Gods and Men (2010), Xavier Beauvois' magisterial tragedy about Trappist monks coming under siege from Muslim fundamentalists in Algeria," writes Justin Chang for Variety magazine.

"Fontaine sketches a subtle portrait of the nuns. Some of them are vivacious young women who consider the convent a temporary shelter (Joanna Kulig's bold performane as Irena). […] In Agnus Dei, what's at stake is not only the past. It is also a film about the traumatic experiences that poison people with distrust. It's a film about the dangerous fear of corporeality, rooted much deeper than orthodox Catholic dogmatism. It is also a film about fanaticism. In the world of Agata Kulesza's complex character of Mother Superior, the solitary struggle between compassion and haughtiness ensues; a struggle between striving for the 'lesser evil' and crime," writes Gazeta Wyborcza's Paweł T. Felis.
