Movie Reviews

Where are the lesbian scenes?

"What the heck is going on here? When you make a film about a cloistered nun and the cover picture even shows a nun apparently putting the moves on a younger woman, you expect at least one good lesbian scene! But this film doesn't have any! How can that possibly be?

The beautiful young woman in the photo is the newest nun in the convent, and several of the older nuns cast covetous gazes in her direction as she removes her stylish clothing to change into her nun's habit. One slightly older nun in particular shows an interest in her, and later even tries to seduce the girl, but nothing comes of it as the girl refuses to comply. We also see a brief glimpse into this older nun's room where she happens to be entertaining another (nude) younger woman, but again we don't really see anything but that brief glance.

Again, why make a film about a beautiful young novice surrounded by older women and then not include a single good lesbian scene? I don't get it."
This is NOT nunsploitation - but it IS a good film!

"First, let me be clear - I love exploitation/grindhouse/sexploitation movies - I grew up during that irretrievable era, and loved every friggin` minute of celluloid sleaze I could feast my eyes on. That said, I also love a GOOD movie and Arthouse film as well, unlike most of my grindhouse brethren. This movie falls into that catagory- it has a good story, realistic dialogue, great sets and costumes, a plot with a decent ending, and the leading actresses are gorgeous as well. It is also a factual story based on actual texts found in an Abbey centuries old. And for me, there was just enough nudity for this type of movie as an added perk. No, this is not "Alucarda","Images In A Convent","Sacred Flesh", Malabimba" or "Satanico Pandemonium", all of which ARE true nunsploitation flix, which I also own and enjoy. This is more like "Flavia The Heretic" or "The Nuns Of St. Archangel", movies that have aspects of exploitation within them, but are much,much more than that but, unfortunately, for lack of better classification within genre`s, get grouped together with other,lower class exploitation (remember, I`m a fan). So, if you can look past the lack of a lesbian scene, which appears or is aluded to in almost EVERY film made between 1969 and 1976 (within reason), you might just enjoy this film - I did."
