In 1973, director/co-writer Domenico Paolella – having launched the genre a year earlier with THE NUNS OF SAINT ARCHANGEL – established a new Nunsploitation standard via superior production values, an impressive international cast and a lurid narrative “adapted from authentic 17th Century chronicles”: Forced into a strict convent by her parents, an aristocratic maiden (Eleonora Giorgi of INFERNO fame) will discover a catechism of depravity that includes savage floggings, lesbian roleplay, illicit sex and murder. Suzy Kendall (BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, TORSO), Catherine Spaak (THE CAT O’ NINE TAILS), Martine Brochard (EYEBALL) and Umberto Orsini (THE DAMNED) co-star in “a Nunsploitation classic that feels like a historical document” (Digitally Obsessed) – also known as THE UNHOLY CONVENT and LOVE STORY OF A NUN – now scanned in 2K from the original negative.
