Benedetta

Directed by
Paul Verhoeven

Benedetta posterA 17th-century nun in Italy suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. She is assisted by a companion, and the relationship between the two women develops into a romantic love affair.

Paul Verhoeven’s latest conversation piece is a readymade controversy of sapphic sisterhood.

“A substantial, sophisticated, yet briskly paced and always highly entertaining drama, which balances quiet scenes of shrewd backroom politicking with lurid scenes of wild religious madness.” – BBC
