COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

À la rencontre de douze nonnes septuagénaires vivant dans le plus vieux couvent de Pologne. Elles s’efforcent de se conformer à l’une des plus vieilles règles monastiques : l’"Ora et Labora" (Prie et Travaille).

Observed at close range, life behind the walls of the oldest Polish nunnery is different from what one would expect. The twelve sisters, almost all of them over 70, manage their daily life with assiduousness and humour. A portrait of a community of solidarity, where individual weaknesses are tolerated by all, unfolds between work, prayer and games night. The outside is ruled by other values: it’s where the faithful “order” prayers for financial success and “nun” doesn’t look like a dream job. (Luc-Carolin Ziemann)
