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. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

B-movie historical drama with Myriem Roussel
29 June 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

The great thing about Italian B-flicks is that they are often technically competent, even beautiful to look at, despite being trash. Set in the late 16th century, this flick gives us the lovely Myriem Roussel as a troubled nun/noblewoman in a muddled story about convent intrigue. The nun has an affair with a nobleman. The story meanders. Fans of Mlle. Roussel can glimpse her topless in a passionate scene with her suitor, but there's not much else going on here. Those hoping for something along the lines of Ken Russell's "Devils" will be disappointed.
