Did You Know?

Mother Superior:Surely you wouldn't argue, Magdalene, that all man's desires should be submitted to at will? That in effect there should be no restraint? That moral forebearance no longer has a part in our relationships? That the most base of emotions should now be the pinnacle of our aspirations?See more »

A Revealing Soft Porn into the Turmoil of the Flesh, 10 June 2011
Author: tabuno from utah

An intriguing softporn movie that incorporates both lofty sounding contemporary English in a Shakespearean cadence, with a collaqe of sex scenes of varying quality, and ultimately the possibility of religious sacrifice. On a number of levels this movie could be considered an exploitation movie, manipulating its audience under the guise of substantive, righteous in order to pander to sexual, titillating pornography. At the same time, there is the intriguing manifestation of a real physical and spiritual battle that might in fact be reflective of the moral and sensual battles that actual rage in the minds and bodies of many people. In an elevated dimensional, eschewing an outright demonic and satanic actuality in the movie, the suggestive nature maintains a separation between reality and fantasy, between the supernatural and the psychological not often depicted in most movies. In the end, this movie is what the eye beholds and the viewer takes away from it and it contains the ingredients of any number of interpretations.
