Cinema Omnivore - Benedetta (2021) 7.2/10Reviewed bylasttimeisawVote: 7/10

"But, here is the catch, although it manifests that in one's Benedetta's visions, Jesus has female genitalia, BENEDETTA doesn't do right by lesbianism, the penetration fling betrays Verhoeven's mindset that for Benedetta, it is a phallus that she seeks, and her carnal affair with Bartolomea isn't built on their femininity but as a makeshift since there is no male available, which undercuts the film's integrity and reveals its exploitative nature that isn't far from those 1970s' soft-core dreck that disparagingly makes fun of and eroticizing nuns and lesbians for straight men's pleasure. You can guesstimate what makes Verhoeven tick, that era leaves its mark in his disposition and taste."

Passions human and divineReviewed bygeorgioskarpouzasVote: 8/10

Some film critics in Greece thought that this movie is a hybrid of parody and satire in its attitude towards organized religion. I disagree. Although the treatment of religious themes is rather blasphemous by pietistic standards the amount of human misery and suffering portrayed does not allow the viewer to conceive the movie as satire at least solely as such. Surely the religious visions and the sexual adventures of Benedetta treat religion irreverently but the consequences for her and her protégé Bartolomea have nothing humorous about them. In that time, unlike ours - at least in the West- no jokes were allowed concerning religion.

Misery, violence, intrigue abound in the plot and lust, although explicit, is just one of the sins portrayed. Ambition, struggle for power and precedence, avarice are the prevailing motives of the characters. Christian charity pales before those demonic passions although it is not totally absent.

The plight of the poor, the intrigues of the powerful, the omnipresence of the plague, the violence of the soldiery offer a bleak picture of society. One is reminded of Flesh and Blood by the same director situated in about the same historical period. Both have a central heroine with superb survival skills to help her navigate through insurmountable adversities.

Humour and satire exist but the general atmosphere is so ominous, so laden with menace, violence and disease that you are left saddened with the misery inherent in the human experience of 17nth century Tuscany. Nothing betrays the artistic splendour of the Renaissance, just a bleak struggle for survival and mastery, for power and precendence, for wealth and prestige where Christianity is used to serve those ulterior motives.

It is a sad movie. That said Virginie Efira and Daphne Patakia are gorgeous both artistically and sexually. But I think Charlotte Rampling in the role of the abbess gives the more memorable performance as a character full of ambiguity and contradictions. Lamber Wilson shines as the satanic nuncio although his character is rather flat in his evil propensities.

The costumes and the representation of the era are superb and the religious visions of Benedetta are far-fetched and subversive. Pietistic believers are going to be offended and will probably say: would he dare to do the same with Muslim religious symbols? But I do not think that the movie is anti-Christian. It shows how lofty ideals are used by flawed humans to further very earthly ambitions.

It is true though that without divine solace the society portrayed by Benedetta would be impossible to live in. Watch the movie and form your own opinion.

Verhoeven is up to his usual style with his newest film. Violence, sex and religious hypocrisy. He pushes boundaries as only he can do. The cast does a superb job especially Virginie Efira, Daphné Patakia and of course Charlotte Rampling who never disappoints.
