Lascia stare i santi

8.6 / 10 (357)


A journey through Italy across a century of popular religious devotion. Ancient and more recent saints, white and black Madonnas, devotional processions… are the expression of a need for the sacred that seems very distant from our way of being, but perhaps is not that distant at all.

MUBI's take

One of today’s foremost Italian documentarians, Gianfranco Pannone crafted this lyrical, mesmerizing look at religious faith through the decades. Mixing archival footage with contemporary imagery, his masterfully edited dive into a forgotten past is narrated by Fabrizio Gifuni and Sonia Bergamasco.
