Synopsis

Conspiracy of Hearts (1960) box art This moving and underrated tale from Rank about nuns helping Jewish children escape the Nazis in war-torn Italy was made with sincerity and feeling by Ralph Thomas, himself a Jew. The movie boasts an immensely talented cast, headed by the luminous Lilli Palmer as the Mother Superior, with Sylvia Syms and Yvonne Mitchell as caring nuns, David Kossoff as a rabbi and an early appearance by stage actor Henry Goodman as one of the children. This thoughtful casting lends the film resonance, and it's far better than its potentially mawkish plot combination of children and nuns would suggest.
