A medieval nun is caught in the struggle between her religious vocation and her repressed sexuality. As her abstinence drives her towards madness, she is touched by a terrifying vision of death and also imagines the figure of Mary Magdalen, who challenges her preconceptions about sex as an evil force. Then, as she broods over her fate, the nun's mind is flooded with violent sexual imagery and she gradually make her way towards the brink of self-destruction.

The script and plot - inasmuch as one exists at all - could have been written by a not particularly gifted but very frustrated 14 year old. I was expecting the fantasy sequences to be something along the lines of Ken Russell but they are more like an uninspired Halloween party attended by crypto-fundamentalist Christians.
The women are beautiful and nudity extensive, including shots of their vulva on occasions.
I give it 2 stars because the acting is so bad as to be comical - Simon Hill's being particularly amusing.
Only buy this if you like lesbian porn with a few religious trappings.
With visions of a skeletal nun and Mary Magdalene she slowly starts to lose her sanity. Scared of breaking her vows and thus being forever damned we are led on a surreal journey through her mind by way of visions and recollections.
I must admit that I was surprised as I didn't expect to see so much graphic nudity. There is a nun masturbating, nuns having lesbian sex, a nun being tied to a cross and pleasured by other nuns, along with a nun being licked and caressed by two priests. Along with all this is a naked woman crucified and wearing a crown of thorns, flagellation and self-flagellation. Blasphemy perhaps, sensual most definitely. This is not your usual nunsploitation movie and transcends the genre, becoming art. This is without doubt one of the most erotic films I have seen in a long time. Controversial this may be but it is still a feast for the eyes. If you only see one nunsploitation film this must be it.
