On the run from the battle-seasoned Lord Bruno for sleeping with his wife, the handsome and willing servant, Massetto, flees to the safety of the woods during the warm and peaceful summer of 1347. There, after a chance encounter with the always boozy but merciful Father Tommasso, the young charmer will find refuge into his convent's sanctuary, on one condition: to pretend he is a deaf-mute. However, Massetto's tempting presence will unavoidably upset the already frail balance of things within the sexually-repressed female realm, as nun after nun desperately seeks an escape from their tedious way of life and an extra reason to molest the charming handyman. In the end, will those cloistered Sisters finally find out what they had been missing out on all these years? Written by Nick Riganas

How can a DECAMERON TALE be rendered so lifeless, joyless and entirely lacking in healthy bawdry. The note says that the dialog was ad libbed: obviously, none of the cast was up to the job and fell back on insipid comments and over reliance on variations on a common vulgar word rendered meaningless with repetition. Somebody said that this is supposed to be comedy in the style of Monty Python That might convince somebody who's never paid attention to MP's inspired zaniness. I usually have great patience with badly done movies but was bored and walked out after 20 minutes. I know that my response to some things is a function of age. I've been in academic classes with 20 year olds who thought films I dismissed were simply grand. This one is simply dreck.
