Benedetta

The story of Sister Benedetta Carlini, called “the greatest scandal in the history of the Church,” through the eyes of veteran Paul Verhoeven. The title character increasingly disturbs the Vatican with her visions. The nun’s fate is an excuse for the abbot to enter into dialogue with the Church and think about whether this body is really the seat of evil, or maybe sins should be sought closer to the papal milieu? In Poland and elsewhere, the film sparked protests from the faithful, and on the day of the premiere in Warsaw, a prayer of penance was held for the Little Crusade. What’s all this yelling about? You can see for yourself.

Marie Antoinette (name)

One of the most elegant fashion movies. Sofia Coppola wears a version of Maria Antonia Converse in her closet and plays on the punk song “Hong Kong Garden” by Siouxie and the Banshees.

Although the film did not repeat the success of “Lost in Translation”, you can feel the director’s original vision in it.

Heather, Joshua and Michael first interview the people of Blair about a witch said to haunt the area in the 18th century, then enter the woods to find out how much truth there is in folk tales. The production from 1999 looks amateurish, but there is nothing accidental here. A site that dreams of saying goodbye to 2020 for viewers who like to be scared.
