"'Benedetta' is a gloriously excessive entry from the cinema's master of excess, Paul Verhoeven, and it's an enjoyable, provocative experience. 4/4" - San Francisco Chronicle

BENEDETTA unearths the story of Benedetta Carlini, a 17th-century nun in Tuscany who suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. Wildly entertaining, and featuring standout performances from Virginie Efira as the title character and Charlotte Rampling as the stoic, conflicted Mother Abbess.

"Directed and co-written by Paul Verhoeven, BENEDETTA is a follow-up to 2016’s Elle and marks another late-career triumph for the stylish provocateur. A serious scholar of Christ — he co-authored a book on his life — Verhoeven nevertheless brings an irreverence and wit to his study of Catholicism and the patriarchy. In the new film, based on a true story, a 17th century nun named Benedetta (Virginie Efira) gains notoriety for her spiritual visions as she begins a passionate affair with another nun, Bartolomea (Daphne Patakia). The supporting cast includes Charlotte Rampling and Lambert Wilson." - L.A. Times

"Paul Verhoeven takes us to a nunnery where faith, eroticism and the Black Death make for an unholy good time." - New York Times

"While Benedetta the woman may have been touched by Heaven or cursed from Hell or neither, Benedetta the film is undoubtedly a miracle." - Globe & Mail

"A sexually frank, unruly, and, at times, unapologetically funny nunsploitation flick, cloaked in the aesthetic of a prestige historical drama." - Tribune News Service

"Benedetta functions beyond its 'sacrilegious' concept into a moving tale of romance, diabolical oppression, twisted comedy, frenzied plague fear, and transfixing visions that shock and penetrate the mind" - Flickering Myth
