Casta Diva is a 1935 Italian musical drama film, directed by Carmine Gallone. The film won Best Italian Film at the 1935 Venice International Film Festival. An English-language remake The Divine Spark was made, also directed by Gallone and starring Eggerth.


The film tells the passionate love story of a Gallican priestess and a Roman proconsul (governor of a province). Film is unique because it uses abstract paintings-in-motion to express the passion between the two main characters.
