Critic Reviews for Benedetta
Will Benedetta's personal relationship with God spare their Tuscan town from mass death, or will her forbidden sapphism be both her and the village's demise? You're going to want to find out - trust me.
A truly strange brew, coupling probing, thoughtful questions of faith and religion with the kind of sexual ribaldry and scatological humor you'd expect from a picture that's already being shorthanded as "the lesbian nun movie."
If you go into Benedetta wanting sacrilege, you will technically find it. But if you're queer, sacrilege is nothing new.
Verhoeven does, mixing lurid, cynical exploitation with fluid storytelling and the principled irreverence of a satirist whose art always punches up against institutional dogma and scores a knockout.
