Sangue del mio sangue (Blood of My Blood). 2015. Italy/France/Switzerland. Written and directed by Marco Bellocchio. With Alba Rohrwacher, Roberto Herlitzka, Pier Giorgio Bellocchio. DCP. In Italian; English subtitles. 106 min.
Set in an abandoned convent prison in his hometown of Bobbio, Marco Bellochio’s spellbinding anti-Catholic fable moves mysteriously from a 17th-century witch trial to a 21st-century society of Russian oligarchs, tax inspectors, and other vampires. Alba Rohrwacher and Federica Fracassi are the devoutly virginal Perletti sisters, who through medieval sorcery end up in bed with the twin brother of a dead priest.
