Fanaticism is often nothing more than the other face of madness.
Writer/Director Sergio Grieco is better known for the last film he directed, Mad Dog Killer, a fave of Quentin Tarantino. This entry into the nunsploitation genre is pretty tame by the standards set by such films as Cloistered Nun: Runa's Confession and Sacred Flesh.
It is basically a Romeo and Juliet story in Spain with the Inquisition used to separate two lovers. The film spends the bulk of it's time focusing on the abuses of the Catholic Church in that regard, where anonymous lies were used to condemn and murder in the name of god.
The actual nunsploitation aspects are confined to exposed breasts. All of the action takes place under sheets or off camera. Those looking for titillation will not find it in this film. It contains only extremely obese clerics and their obsession with power. Look elsewhere for your fun.
