Editorial Reviews

Nympha is the story of Sarah, an American who goes to Italy to take vows needed to become a cloister nun of the "New Order" Convent. The rules of the convent are very strict, so strict that they are often considered a form of torture. Sarah's path is divided into four steps, "hear" the Lord, "see" the Lord, "touch" the Lord and "talk" with the Lord, Each step will be painful for both Sarah's physical and mental self. During Sarah's journey, she has visions of the Convents past - visions of a young woman whose life was ruined by the religious fanaticism of her violent grandfather. Her grandfather believes he can talk directly with God but, in reality, he is utterly mad. This madness is now present today - within the walls of the convent where Sarah lives.

Altho I originally purchased a copy of this flik back when it was first released in 2007 I'm just getting around to reviewing it now - because - I just watched it again and was reminded of my initial somewhat negative impressions of it - which I thot to share with other potential purchasers.

This is an Italian effort starring Tiffany Shepis in the role of 'Sarah' - an American student who comes to an Italian nunnery looking to find God - but winds up undergoing a bunch of horrific tortures at the hands of the 'good sisters' (and their 'doctor') that are supposed to 'help' her in her 'spiritual quest'. These medical 'procedures' are designed to rid the novitiate of her 'troubling' senses of hearing, sight, touch, and speech. In Sarah's case the removal of her ear-drums, eyesight (via acid drops). hands (via scalding in boiling water), AND tongue! - actually have the effect of heightening her extra-sensory powers so that she becomes ultra-sensitive and clairvoyant to both her present surroundings and also to some ghostly flash-backs to previous evil-doings at the convent.

This all might sound like a recipe for some good nasty nunsploitation style 'fun'. but in the hands of Director/writer/producer/cinematographer/editor: Ivan Zuccon it all becomes a confusing and, ultimately, un-engaging slog.

I am personally not as familiar with the works of lead actress Tiffany Shepis as other reviewers appear to be so I have no other films to base a comparison on, but she is competent in this role, and has no aversion to removing her clothing when the plot so requires.

The 'negatives' that struck me about the production were, unfortunately, abundant.

Format: DVD
Italian cinema has always been some of my favorite. All the way from the greats like Argento and Fulci to the present indie Italian filmmaker Dante Tomaselli. Even though most of the films are mostly style over substance they all are very poetic and they put everything they have into each frame of film they shoot. Ivan Zuccon's NyMpha was a film that I had been aware for quite some time. I had also heard of his previous film Bad Brains. Unfortunately I had not seen either of them until just a few days ago.

NyMpha stars Tiffany Shepis who just so happens to be one of my favorite scream queens. Tiffany plays Sarah in this film who is a young English woman who is looking to get closer to her Lord. So she chooses to join a convent of nuns in Italy. Only this isn't your average run of the mill convent.. No way, these nuns are pretty damn hardcore and have some very extreme beliefs. In order to be one with God you must go through several tortuous levels that include "hearing", "touching", "seeing" and "speaking" with the Lord. As you can imagine the torture is not pretty.

But this is only a very small portion of what the movie contains. While Sarah is locked in her room between each session a previous inhabitant of the convent is showing her visions. Ninfa is revealing her past to Sarah through several short bursts of flashbacks. Ninfa's life was ruined by her insanely religious Grandfather. Her grandfather believes he can speak directly with God and begins a wild and dangerous spiral into insanity that ends up very detrimental to Ninfa's life.

I have to say that the most impressive thing to me about this film was the wonderful score that ran throughout.
