The Rebel Nun

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Most Italian movies dealing with naughty nuns are fairly decorous (like The Nun and the Devil, which wouldn't make anyone's wimple flutter), but here is an exception: it's packed to bursting with naughty happenings, and all beautifully photographed too. The heroine, moreover, is portrayed as a fervent Women's Libber, born five centuries too early, who is enraged that Father, Son, Holy Ghost and all twelve apostles are masculine. To prove that women can outdo males in senseless brutality, she joins forces with an invading army of Moslems, and takes revenge by aiming a spiked ball at the eyes of her convent's male patron saint. Any sign of intelligence or serious thinking is welcome in this cesspool realm of cinema, but the results here seem very hollow.
