Panorama / Careers


In a remote past, the Church tries to find out if a woman accused of seducing her confessor and leading him to suicide has a deal with the devil. In present day, the film follows an old vampire whose existence is threatened when a millionaire tries to buy his dwelling.

By now, the master Bellocchio has reinvented himself several times throughout his career. He did it once again with Blood of My Blood: a journey into the world of the Inquisition. Its cinematograhic vehemence relates this film to a very different one that is also vampire-related, such as Coppola’s Dracula. Both filmmakers understand that these characters, these mysteries, can be better addressed with a kind of boiling, passionate cinema; a kind of cinema that is not afraid of finding beauty in a river and a castle with a song by Metallica in the score. It’s also a prudent cinema that is aware of the power of a naked woman. It’s a cinema that doesn’t flee from contemporary ugliness and absurdity, and its passing of time is not arbitrary, but completely free. It’s an aristocratic cinema, in the finest sense of the word. And nothing else matters. JPF
