Perfect spiritual union sought by absolute renunciation
16 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

According to the Novice, she is a member of "a closed monastic order where perfect spiritual union is sought by absolute renunciation". The film shows us. She is plunged into a bath of cold water. She is chased by nuns jabbing her with electric prods. Sister Lulu has a special trick, crystals with the power to render "the user" unconscious. Thus stupefied, the Novice is wrapped, placed into a coffin and handed over to undertakers who bury it. She wakes up trapped. Hours later, Sister Lulu racks away the dirt and frees her.

The Novice realises "in a moment of blinding clarity that the only escape from a life of perfection was death" and she runs full tilt into a wall. When she comes round, Sister Lulu says, "So you want to escape the Order my child?" The Novice draws the conclusion that Sister Lulu "was determined to unit with myself in bonds of love and that the end of my suffering was reliant on convincing Sister Lulu that the feeling was mutual". So she kisses her. But Sister Lulu's idea of escape is not the same as the Novice's …

This is a competent little piece, with shades of danger, lesbianism and submission. The film is well made with tight editing. Maybe a bit too tight. I had to watch it more than once to understand it. The Novice character is simple, earthy, carelessly sexual and Siwan Morris (attractive Welsh accent) plays it well. Sister Lulu is delicately dangerous and Joanne McQuinn delivers that. Morris is fully naked a couple of times and very nice she is too.

I score 6/10.
