Storyline

Anne and Lore, neighbors and best friends, barely into their teens, board at a convent school where they have taken a vow to sin and to serve Satan. Anne keeps a secret diary, they read a salacious novel, they get a classmate in trouble, they spy on the nuns, they set aside their communion wafers; they make a pact of devotion. Summer vacation starts: Anne's parents leave her alone with the servants for two months at the family château. She and Lore are free to make mischief. They are cruel as well and play games of seduction. As summer ends and fall term begins, things come to a head. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Time to deliver the message
25 June 2000 | by (Colchester, England) – See all my reviews

I was 15 when I first saw this movie, back in 1973. I was studying GCE Film at a boarding school in Essex, when our tutor screened 'Don't deliver us' for our mock O Level paper. The theme was censorship and immediately it became obvious that the censors were in for a tough time. Notwithstanding the sexual content of the film and the depraved way in which the two girls flout there vulnerability to the innocent village idiot, the film really ran into trouble with it's anti-Catholic theme which is prominent throughout. This aside the film has plenty to say and with the advancement in our tolerance of the shocking and with more acceptance of criticism of the church, I feel it is time to give this film an airing and test it's ability to deliver a message.
