In a real change of pace for the "Black Emanuelle" series Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) has become a nun(!), and has been put in charge of a naughty teenage vixen (Swiss miss Monica Zanchi) who is being escorted to a convent school after her father catches her in bed with her young stepmother! While Emanuelle tries to morally straighten out the girl, the girl tries to immorally straighten out every guy she meets (including a dangerous escaped convict played my Gabriel Tinti)and to corrupt the nun. You can pretty much guess who wins this contest, especially since "Sister Emanuelle" turns out to be much more corrupt than the girl to begin with.
This movie was not directed by Joe D'Mato, but fits right in with the transgressive films he directed in the series in that it manages to combine "nunsploitation" (politically incorrect by today's standards) with schoolgirl exploitation (VERY politically incorrect by today's standards). I might point out though that the voluptuous Monica Zanchi is not especially believable as a schoolgirl, and the svelte and sexy Laura Gemser is not even remotely believable as a nun, so I think we're pretty safely ensconced in the world of fantasy here. The two actresses are a pretty incendiary combination, and downright explosive when you add in Italian sex bomb Dirce Funari as the stepmother.
Along with "Emanuelle, the Queen" this probably has the strongest plot of any film in the series, and unlike that one doesn't fall apart in the end. It does fall back on a hoary old cliché in the finale, but it actually works here because it leaves it pretty ambiguous whether all the degradation we've witnessed really exists in the heart of the girl or the nun. It's also pretty well made--for instance, there's a memorable scene where the girl talks in voice over about having been "raped" by three guys on the beach while the visual flashback shows what REALLY happened. (Some 15 years later I remember mainstream movie reviewers practically wetting themselves when overrated "film genius" Steven Soderberg did the exact same thing in "Sex, Lies, and Videotape"). The music is pretty good too. Recommended.
