Exploration the pshcho-sexual dark side of Catholicism.
29 April 2000 | by (St. Louis, MO USA) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this film since it was released in the US as "Devil Is A Woman" in 1975, but the story and images are still vivid. For me, it was one of those films that changed forever the possibilities of cinema. This is a must see gem.
