Two haunting Italian tales from different centuries in the convent prison of Bobbio, caught somewhere between past and present: a young 17th century priest falls under the spell of a bewitching nun and a modern-day tax investigator tries to push a mysterious old man out of hiding.

The two-part 'Blood of my Blood' won the critics' prize in the Venice competition. "Master director Marco Bellocchio ('Good Morning, Night', 'Vincere') continues to play with form and content with an originality that makes younger directors look like they're grasping at ephemeral straws." (Variety)
