Cult cinema doesn't get too much more weird than this...
Nunsploitation would seem to be more of a European thing, but the Japanese decided to have a go too, and Wet and Rope is one of the results. Asian cinema is often remarked upon for its bizarreness, and after having seen this film; I've got to say that isn't surprising...in the least! Quite what the hell the point of this film is, is anyone's guess, as all the sleazy elements on display don't mean a thing to one another, thus making the film merely a collection of oddities, united one very thin plot line. The story (if you can even call it that) follows a young woman who tries to commit suicide after being thrown out by her husband. After being saved by a priest, she is recruited into his convent...where all the nuns are more pervy than your average whore! The film features a lot of sex, some of it featuring things like masks, bread rolls and (wait for it) sheep costumes! I actually can't believe there was a time when I found lesbian sex out of the ordinary...it's the norm in films like these! It really is hard to take this film seriously, but it's not a complete dead loss as watching the events unfold is often very funny, and fans of wayward cinema are likely to get a kick out of it. Overall, I can't say that this is a favourite of mine...but it's just about worth seeing.
