3.0 out of 5 stars Ken Russell's not the only one..., 11 Aug 2001
By 
This review is from: To the Devil a Daughter [VHS] [1976] (VHS Tape)
...to have a thing about nuns, as this Hammer outing starring pouty Nastassia Kinski proves. To the Devil A Daughter is not the best film Hammer ever made, but still a good showing. You can see the potential for brilliance with wonderful grey areas, but sadly it never quite happens. An abrupt and 'pat' ending doesn't help, but Lee is marvellous as always as the imposing and very naughty (alright, evil) Reverend. Nastassia Kinski's turn as the teenage nun is very wide-eyed and soft-voiced, but that's a good thing. There are some genuinely disturbing moments, particularly the flashback to the climatic 'ritual' sequence in which she is promised to the cult's god. Could have been better, but still a quirky, menacing film that more than deserves a look.
