  1. Aur Ora B's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    Sensitive, intelligent, sometimes epic – with a fantastic AR, as almost always

  2. Matt Richards's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    Wonderfully brooding storytelling with an unexpected but totally welcomed ethnographic overlay that is not forced. Alba Rohrwacher again proves she's got some of the best acting chops in the game. 3.5 stars

  3. Corriel's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    A good but not great film, although the story is rather interesting. Worth watching for Alba Rohrwacher admirers. :)

  4. Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    A bold self-assured debut by a filmmaker whose career I’ll be following in the future. It nonetheless rests a bit too much on the virtuoso work of its cast, especially Alba Rohrwacher’s minimalist wonder of a performance. The swimming pool scene near the end is of surprising beauty, hypnotizing the audience with its perusal of the wonder that is the human body and its sensual physicality. Great exploration of gender.

  5. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    Alba Rohrwacher is Italy's Tilda Swinton.

  6. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    (...)Mark wird gespielt von Alba Rohrbacher, die eine der tollsten Schauspielerinnen Italiens ist! Zum Glück mündet ihre spröde Schönheit am Ende nicht in Dekoltee und Pfennigabsätzen! Ein kleiner Arthaus Film zum Entdecken!

  7. mpiedfort's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    Wikipedia: "The sworn virgin is believed to be the only formal, socially defined female-to-male cross-gender and cross-dressing role in Europe." I'd never heard of this Balkan tradition; I was amazed at how strongly the acceptance of gender-crossing contrasted with the strict enforcement of traditional gender roles. Bc of this it was all-or-nothing for Hana at first. Her gender fluidity made for a pretty cool story.

  8. Marta Donati's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    Beautiful research on the construction of gender roles, with a great directorial touch concerned with bodies, muscles and physicality. Alba Rohrwacher is brilliant as Hana/Mark.

  9. Jorawantstoeat's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    Beautiful reflection on the question of freedom and constraint

  10. ach's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    worth watching, with a little bit of patience, since its not the typical enjoyable movie

  11. Pymo's rating of the film Sworn Virgin

    Live like a man but I don't like men.

  12. nein's rating of the film Sworn Virgin
