Deeply religious Maud takes a job as a nurse in the lavish home of Amanda, a once-famous dancer bedridden by spinal cancer. The two women soon find a mutual understanding, but it is only a matter of time before the darker side of Maud's personality comes into play. This much-discussed British film fits right in with contemporary horror films with artistic ambitions. Rather than a genre spectacle, however, it delivers a powerful and ambivalent spiritual experience, exceptional from both the visual and sonic points of view.

Rose Glass

With Saint Maud, her feature debut awarded with several British film awards, she has proven both how talented she is and that she is heading toward distinctive, original work.
