Movie Info

In Stip, a small town in Macedonia, every January the local priest throws a wooden cross into the river and hundreds of men dive after it. Good fortune and prosperity are guaranteed to the man who retrieves it. This time, Petrunya dives into the water on a whim and manages to grab the cross before the others. Her competitors are furious - how dare a woman take part in their ritual? All hell breaks loose, but Petrunya holds her ground. She won her cross and will not give it up.

Critic Reviews for God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (3)

  • It's a story inspired by a real event that is given a quirky satirical treatment by Macedonian director Teona Strugar Mitevska.

  • Positions itself as a feminist cry against a patriarchal Macedonia in the grips of bullying machismo and hidebound religion, yet the genial rushed ending undercuts its gender-equality thrust...

    February 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It simply runs out of ideas.

    February 12, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Religious-themed satire is unlikely to gain many converts.

    February 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Petrunya's struggle is emblematic of the most acute social issue of our times, which has yet to gain momentum in the Balkans, and Mitevska's film is both a significant contribution to the cause and a powerful cinematic work in its own right.

    December 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film may not explore its themes of political intrigue/sexual politics as well as it should and the ending can be seen as a bit abrupt for some but in the end, God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya is a film that does more than enough to succeed.
