News & Interviews for Sworn Virgin

Critic Reviews for Sworn Virgin

  • Skipping deftly between time frames while keeping her camera close to her protagonist - played with tremulous understatement by the remarkable actress Alba Rohrwacher - Bispuri traces a journey of delicate interior shifts and reversals.

    April 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Even though Rohrwacher never quite passes -- she looks too much like Barbra Streisand's Yentl -- the movie is on to a larger point, namely about the fluidity of sexual identity and our universal penchant for self-reinvention

    April 22, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film obliges viewers to puzzle out the nature of the sworn virgin tradition, and even at the tale's end, it may not be clear. This can only be counted a virtue by those who count obscurity and bafflement as artistic assets.

    April 22, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Although Ms. Rohrwacher captures Mark's uncertain, shifting physicality, the movie doesn't always succeed in getting inside the character's head.

    April 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Cutting between present, childhood, and recent past, Bispuri constructs a subtle, richly emotional collage.

    April 20, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The dialogue is affectedly scarce, too scarce to sustain and deepen the story psychologically.
