Review

Agnus Dei tells a story that takes place at a nunnery during the WWII. The connection between a French doctor and nunnery in Poland reveals the darkness of the war while depicting the female doctor Mathilde as a savior. Anne Fontaine, who often tells stories of a woman, creates a drama on saving humanity through this historical film. The Red Cross doctor Mathilde is asked to visit a nunnery by a nun and she finds the nuns and women at the nunnery are pregnant with unwanted children. Avoiding the Soviet soldiers who occupy the area, Mathilde helps them despite the dangers she has to go through. Even though she is threatened to be sexually assaulted, she does not abandon her responsibilities. The title of the film, Agnus Dei, means Lamb of God, which refers to the characters in the film and emphasizes the need for salvation. By representing the Lambs, the film dramatically depicts the road for salvation and the harsh reality of the war. One of the screenwriters for the film is Pascal Bonitzer, a famous critic and writer from France. (LEE Sang-yong)
