Quotes

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?

Truly Awful
26 July 2000 | by robjohnellisSee all my reviews

I saw this in London. There were five people in the audience. I think the intent was to make an arty euro porn film, but it looks like it was shot on beta and suffered from dropout and poor colouring. The story goes nowhere, just a tempted mother superior and various nun couplings. I really made the effort to see this one after enjoying the far superior RAZERBLADE SMILE, but Eileen Daly is truly wasted in this mess. Pity.
