Sheri Linden Hollywood Reporter Chiara wanders, in ways that can be rewarding or confounding, but it takes chances. Sep 9, 2022 Full Review Brandon Judell Brandon Judell (Medium) Chiara with its Biblical folk dancing and breaking into song, isn’t exactly Jesus Christ Superstar, but it’s still a fun trip back to the 13th century. An impressed Lord rewards the young lass with miracles, including concocting olive oil out of thin air. Rated: 7/10 Jun 9, 2023 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film It seems appropriate that, at long last, the Patron Saint of television should be celebrated in film, and this really feels like a celebration of her struggle, of her values, rather than a bland hagiography. Rated: 4.5/5 Feb 6, 2023 Full Review Fred Barrett In Review Online [Has] little in common with the tortured, Kierkegaardian reflections of Scorsese’s Silence, or the hallucinatory epiphanies of Paul Verhoeven’s...Benedetta. Instead, Nicchiarelli grasps at the transcendent through her numerous exuberant musical numbers. Sep 12, 2022 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com While the subject matter lends itself to a necessary rigidity, Nicchiarelli only accomplishes in conveying a sense of the interminable in this ponderous exercise, attempting to enliven the production with musical numbers both distracting and cringeworthy. Rated: 1/5 Sep 9, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
