sorry for the mistakes!
LA MONACA DEL PECCATO
Joe D'Amato comeback to nunsploitation with a movie, very freely adapted from "The Nun" of Diderot.
Surptinsingly, however, he make a movie in a soft-form sweetened from
horror and eros two typical things of his works. "La Monaca Del
Peccato" disappoints, not because of the absence of the above but
because the story never took off and it beind predictable and flat.
It's a minor D'Amato too in the direction of it- This movie go in the
history mostly for the use of "Fresh Meat" (meat and fresh and not new
faces we say it on purpose). D'Amato use new actresses forgettin his
historical interpretes. The protagonist is Eva Grimaldi twenty-five
years old in 1986 far from her show girl career. The cast also include,
Gabriele Tinti (former husband of Laura Gemser), Gabriele Gori and
A funny historic thing, Eva Grimaldi, mentrions this movie on its
official website but she changed the title to "The Religious" and
quoting Diderot (...)
D'Amato opened this movie in a rough way. Immediately after brief
opening credits we see a scene of rape against the young Susanna (Eva
Grimaldi) raped by her stepfather. Then the movie became more quietly,
some naked body here and there, but few caresses itself mainly tells
the story of Susanna the obliged to take vows.
The monastery, as nunsploitation wants, is inhabited by some lesbians
Sisters in parte attracted by a handsome young priest (Gabriele Gori)
who lives and works in the adjacent church and a foundling boy that
live in the convent. Susanna became the favorite of Mother Superior
triggers the jealousy of the others Nuns, especially by the Mother
Superior lover, Sister Teresa. When the Superior dies, Sister Teresa
takes place, unleashes his vengeance on Susanna also trying to silence
her and accusing her of being possesses. She also convinces others
Sisters to accuse her and the priest with whom Susanna as well had
sexual intercourse (by a gate...). Apart from the particular exorcism
involving the recruitment of holy water by vaginal rout, "La Suora Del
Peccato" continues mildy and ends with Susan says she is possessed in
front of the high clergy.
Meaning and sense absolutely anti-clerical for this movie but a low level from the great filmography of the roman director.
