Love Letters for a Nun (1978)

Director: Jorge Grau

Starring: Lina Romay, Analia Gade, Alfredo Alcon, Teresa Gimpera, Fernando Sanchez Polack, Carme Fortuny, Virginia Mataix

More info: IMDb

Plot: Maria (Lina Romay) is forced to enter a Spanish convent run by a stern Mother Superior. Maria mistakes Mother Mariana's maternal care for romantic interest and reciprocates by kissing, then fondling her. Maria then masturbates to orgasm. Mother Mariana then mistakes Maria's actions for demonic possession and turns her over to the inquisition. Mother Mariana begins writing to her confessor about her sins and her ever increasing lack of faith. Through her letters she begins feeling an attraction to the confessor and eventually their relationship becomes clearly defined.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? No way, Sister.

Part of the Nunsploitation Project (July & August 2013). Click here for more naughty nun insanity!  

This might be a good drama but I couldn't help but feel like I purchased a one way ticket to Numbsville.  It's slow, REALLY slow, and what's worse is Mariana is constantly in voice over mode as she writes down her thoughts.  The problem there is they seem to be repetitive and tedious, like variations on a theme I'm tired of hearing. I've picked out the best bits here...

Nunsploitation? Yes but light on the 'sploitation when you consider the movie is fifteen minutes shy of two hours.  It's not poorly made but it bored the piss out of me.  Maybe I should take that piss and put it in a jar with a crucifix like that one guy did and call it art.  You know what they say, when you have lemons...
