Lesbian nuns during the Spanish Inquisition
29 May 2001 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Spanish super star Carmen Maura plays a nun who agrees to a selfless scam, a fake stigmata, only to avoid separation from her lover, another nun. 'Extramuros' is edgy all right: a plot or scheme agreed upon between two lovers to escape their plight, but with a twist. The scheme is similar to some we've recently seen power couples of politicians, religious leader and the like, play out on the world in the last decade. But the twist this film throws in - literal and actual self-flagellation is original.

It's a serious and passionate work, highlighting the theme of outspoken women-against-repression, seen in other good gay and lesbian films. This is not a lesbian "Nun sense" or another "Dark Habits" (by Almodovar, which also starred Carmen Maura, and also set in a Spanish convent, with some lesbian nuns).

Perhaps, best of all, 'Extramuros' is realistic and frank. It isn't shy about its characters' sexuality. Their sexuality, and the film as a whole are genuine.
