Sinfornia Erotica (1980)

*** (out of 4)

Disturbing and extremely well-made Jess Franco film about a woman (Lina Romay) returning home from an insane asylum only to discover her husband is now living with a man. The two men eventually find a nun (Susan Hemmingway) who's been raped and the three come up with a plot to kill the wife for her money. This is one of Franco's "art" films that manages to be quite beautiful in a poetic sense and ranks among one of his better films. The performances are all very good, especially Romay who once again gets to show off her sexual fits. Not nearly as explicit as I was expecting but still very good.
