odd but gripping
11 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Weird, a little confusing, but oddly gripping.

The movie is straight to the point, Sarah (Shepis) is entering the nunnery in the opening scene, no back story for her or anything. We're given the impression that this is indeed her vocation, to live a life of solitude as a nun. Within the first few minutes there are spooky things going on, but with no explanation.

Throughout the film we are shown flash backs of two men bickering about a garden, the flash backs get progressively darker and more sinister. As all this is happening, Sarah is being put through her paces, enduring physical and mental torture - this way she'll become closer to god!

For a while the film will keep you confused, but this just makes you want to watch it to the end to find out why, who or what!

A strange film all round, dark and sinister - with a lesbian romp thrown in for no reason whatever - but will keep you watching 5/10
