Editorial Reviews

Behind the convent walls of St. Archangel, the Mother Superior is dying. And there are three eager candidates with selfish motives waiting to take over her duties, including Mother Giulia. All three wish to take control of land owned by the church for the benefit of their respective families. When the Mother Superior is poisoned, Mother Giulia assumes the role. It's not long before everything comes crashing down around her in an avalanche of greed, betrayal, torture, lesbian lust and abominable fornication. Directed by Domenico Paolella (Story of a Cloistered Nun), The Nuns of St. Archangel (1973) was released on video in North America under the title, Sisters of Satan.

An intelligent release from Redemption Films, who are primarily known as an exploitation company, and that`s where these murky waters flow from - this one`s too sophisticated, historical, artful and classy for the 'naughty nun' choir, who are looking for cheap thrills ala 'The Nun Of Monza'(1980), by that godawful hack Bruno Mattai. This film is more along the lines of 'Flavia The Heretic' or 'Story Of A Cloistered Nun' (directed by Domenico Paoletta, who also did this film a few years prior), both of which transcend the nunsploitation catagory, as opposed to 'Alucarda' or 'Sacred Flesh', which ARE true examples of this genre (and I own `em both and enjoy them as well). So if you want a coherent storyline, good acting and direction with just enough nudity and the perks that come with these types of flix, you`ll enjoy it, if you`re looking for sexploitation sleaze, look away from the light of the Archangel...

The NUNS OF ST. ARCHANGEL is a great movie. It is easy to become so engaged with the action that the subtly presented ideas are overlooked. This movie is not only interesting to watch (action, scenery, and photography), but cerebrally challenging!

Format: DVD
Le monache di Sant'Arcangelo ( NUN OF SAINT ARCHANGEL - Domenico
Paolella, 1973) draws an audience today in part from Ornella Muti
having a tailor-made short appearance, as she once again
reflects "the people" vs. the establishment, as she so often does
in the movies.

From a cinematographical point of view, the professionalism is
outstanding, in terms of technique, wide screen release,
focused images, story, and script (albeit somewhat minimal). It's
also not puritan, as there is gratuituous nudity, which is
somehow appropriate in the context of various torture techniques
employed in the inquisitorial proceedings.

The microcosm of such a Nun environment, closed in itself,
creates a world in itself. The youths in it, may naturally be
inclined to seek experiences, culture, meaningful relationships
resulting in breaches in conduct, whether it be in lesbianism
(from the absence of men in the Nunnery) or in secret visits by
outside male lovers.

The movie is successful in demonstrating etiquette, structured
authority, mannerisms, how power interests maneuver behind the
scenes for outcomes they desire, (Head Nun position), while at
the same time, noblemen obtain young nubiles for marriage,
despite resistance, and having their own lovers.

The seriousness of the Church, its reputation, the rigor of
monitoring and regulating moral conduct is evident, in face of a
dark world, difficult to comprehend, still reeling from the many
mysteries of the past, including the Black Plague that at one
time, wiped out entire populations and lands for lack of sanitary
installations, etc.
