Sweet, but sexy young sister Virginia de Mayva (an excellent performance by the luscious Zora Kerova) becomes the new Mother Superior at the convent of Monza. Said convent proves to be a veritable hotbed of sinful carnality and depravity. Debauched priest Don Arrigone (a superbly anguished portrayal by Franco Corazzi) and lecherous womanizer Giampaolo Osio (a perfectly slimy turn by Mario Cutini) plot to seduce Sister Virginia. But will their wicked and lustful actions go unnoticed?

Director Bruno Mattei does a bang-up job of effectively creating and sustaining a strong brooding atmosphere of guilt, repression, and simmering sexual longing. Claudio Fracassi’s blithely sleazy script covers all the essential lurid bases: we’ve got whippings, rape, lesbianism, masturbation, copious tasty distaff nudity, and even group sex all present and accounted for. Moreover, the cast act with real gusto: Kerova and Corazzi do sterling work in the leads, with able support from Paola Corazzi as the saucy Sister Candida, Paola Montenero as the sadistic Sister Benedetta, and Leda Simonetti as the brash Margherita. Giuseppe Bernardini’s slick cinematography gives the picture an attractive glossy look. Gianni Marchetti’s funky-groovin’ syncopated score further adds to the considerable naughty goings-on. Fans of choice dirty Italian exploitation junk should really enjoy this flick.
