The Emanuelle Series: Sister Emanuelle
27 February 2009 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Sister Emanuelle (1977) follows the exploits of Emanuelle as she tries to find God and cleanse herself of sin by being a nun in a convent. Her devotion to God and not her old hedonistic lifestyle is challenged by a wild new convert. Can Emauelle resist temptation and cling to her new found love of religion or will the wild and carefree Emauelle reemerge and embrace her old lifestyle?

I was disappointed by this movie. It's okay but I was expecting a whole lot more because it's Emanuelle mixed in with nunsploitation. This could have been an instant classic, but it fails on some levels but not all. A must for die hard Emanuelle fans.
