Description
 
Though the Roman Catholic Church deemed it blasphemous, most critics were in awe of this masterly, provocative drama from Marco Bellocchio (Fist in the Pocket). Sergio Castellitto stars as Ernesto, a painter and avowed atheist who is stunned when he discovers that the Vatican is considering making his mother a saint. Summoned to testify as to her worthiness for beatification, Ernesto is forced to confront his deep-seeded hatred for the stern and unaffectionate woman. "Uncannily human and deeply humanist" (Village Voice). In Italian with English subtitles.
