Storyline

A timid, insecure popular author with an overly-attentive professor husband decide to write an erotic novel. With encouragement from her sister and a bi-sexual friend, she goes to France with the intent of doing research at an inn where a diary she had been using documented erotic encounters. Instead she finds the inn is now a cloister for singing nuns. However, a young, divorced sound engineer is also there taping the nuns. While attracted, she mostly succumbs only to new fantasies until he follows her home to New York. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Very Touching
9 August 2002 | by (Iowa) – See all my reviews

Great film that has the wonderful ability to be both very funny and very touching. The acting by the main characters really allows the viewer to see into their relationship. The supporting characters add depth to an already deep relationship and help the view to understand why the two characters act as they do. I would recommend it to anyone.
