Fast forward six years and Brazil has become an evangelical state where marriage is venerated, children are blessed, heterosexual sex (even without spouses) praised, and divorce is considered an apostasy.

So she tries a different sort of “prayer”.

“A thoughtful, intimate rumination on spirituality and sensuality.” — Screen International
“Being carnal ‘Divine Love’ is not for children but it is a shimmering dystopian hoot.” — Laurence Kardish, FilmColumbia co-artistic director and former senior film curator at MOMA
