Storyline

The young noble Don Monza is caught and thrown out by the nun Virginia de Leva when she catches him flirting with one of her nun sisters across the stone wall between their gardens. He hears the rumor that she'd have an affair with her trustee - so he kills him in a set-up duel and aims to take his place. Against her initial resistance, Monza manages to win her heart - and to get into her bed. This doesn't stay a secret for long, but Monza, now in love, does everything to keep it going.

Nothing You Haven't Seen Before In Better Movies
30 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you have any doubts that the Italian film industry is run by Communists, watch this movie. The only reason that this even exists is to show nuns having sex, priests acting like a**holes, and the Catholic church in general being (yawn) hypocrites. Whatever, but did this have to be so boring?

It's actually not as offensive as Flavia The Heretic, Killer Nun, The Excommunicates of San Valentino, or Satanico Pandemonium but the lack of anything interesting makes this the worst of about half a dozen or so "nunsploitation" movies that I've seen. Those other films didn't just bash Catholicism but also told interesting stories.

Watch this only if you are an insomniac looking for a miracle sleep aid!
