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.

  • 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...

  • It simply runs out of ideas.

    Feb 11, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Religious-themed satire is unlikely to gain many converts.

    Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Petrunya with its easy-to-root for protagonist and comedic premise is the type of accessible foreign language film that could be a break-out success. Yet, within its mainstream trappings are sharp examinations on gender inequality in contemporary society.

    Nov 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A fresh, potent spin on the issue of gender inequality reinforced by religion.
