Storyline

Sisterhood is powerful. Before leaving for a mission in Africa, Runa, a nun, visits her sister three years after entering the convent when her sister stole Runa's boyfriend. Runa comes to forgive and to help her sister make enough money buying and selling some convent property so she can marry. The old boyfriend has new women in his life, but he and the sister tell Runa they're a couple in order to keep the property deal. To make even more money, Runa's sister wheedles large gifts from various men she's stringing along. There are flashbacks to Runa's sexual initiation at the convent. Has this taught meekness to Runa?

great style and panache
4 March 2009 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Well directed and beautifully photographed, the slightly bumpy editing is the only fault I can find in this super little gem of a pink film. The credit sequence comprises still shots of the countryside including the nunnery and two consecutive shots are so similar that it gives the impression someone has bumped the camera, a most unfortunate edit and there are others but hey, there are more interesting things to describe. This is not my first Japanese nunsploitation and although this is probably my favourite, the nation certainly has a way with them. They certainly appreciate the potency of the religious paraphernalia, sex in front of an alter, crucifix bouncing on bared chest and such like but also seem to have no hang ups at all with regard to what is depicted. Obviously this is not a religion many in Japan feel too much about and there may be added potency here by laying waste to the 'foreigner's religion'. Certainly the rape of Runa in ripped habit by her American speaking rector seems to be highly symbolic. Only the first scenes are in the religious establishment but there are flashbacks to illustrate what Runa describes as finding God, and also the devil. I found this bright and bold sex and violence fun all the way through. I liked the story development and the humour. This has great style and panache and the ending had me grinning from ear to ear and barely able to resist pressing 'play' once more.
