Product Description

Two young convent girls become friends and decide to spend the summer together. However, their innocent bicycle rides and walks in the country soon develop a much more sinister side. Influenced by their reading of forbidden books, they decide to explore the world of perversion and cruelty. They find a victim and use their innocent exterior to seduce and destroy him. Once they have stepped over the line, they find it impossible to stop. Soon they are contemplating the ultimate evil act. Hugely controversial, the film was banned for blasphemy and has never been released in the US before. It's a film that should be viewed only by those with very open minds.

This is an interesting French film from 1970. Publicists repeatedly emphasise how it was banned by the supposedly worldly French upon its release but if you expect copious helpings of nudity, sex or gore, you'd be sorely dissappointed. It wasn't banned for any of those reasons. You'd expect the French to be above banning nudity and sex and you'd be right. No, it was in fact banned for blashphemy, specifically in its portrayal of the Church and of religion in general. This was at a time when the Church still had a strong (but already declining) influence in France. There is some nudity - two instances of bared breasts and a glimpse of pubic hair, but that's about all. What incensed the Church was the portrayal of its congregation as mindless sheep, of its priests having less than pure thoughts, of lascivious nuns sneaking behind locked doors to kiss each other and the idea of young convent girls performing Satanic rituals and pledging themselves to the Devil.

In the accompanying interview, writer and director, Joel Seria acknowledges that his film is inspired by the 1950s New Zealand murder case which was later immortalised in the movie "Heavenly Creatures" but his film is not actually based on it. In the New Zealand case, the romantically entwined girls plot to murder the mother who tries to separate them. Here they do nothing of the sort because their parents are oblivious and probably couldn't care less if they were attracted to each other. The girls do share a very close bond but the bond is not just sexual attraction to each other. Seria in the interview goes so far as to deny a lesbian link between the two, arguing that the film is more about one girl dominating and slowly corrupting her friend. Essentially they are bored and they feel like outsiders.

I had to watch this twice and then watch a couple of the "extras" explaining the movie. I liked it but the two other people who watched it did not like it at all. I think it is more of an allegory than a movie. The female characters in this movie are definitely evil. This movie is from 1971 and was banned in many places mainly because it was blasphemous of the Catholic Church. A closed-minded or religious person need not watch this movie. But, if you like odd, foreign films with subtitles and have an open mind, you may like it.

This was a bit kinky, but nothing outrageous. It was an interesting film about 2 teen age girls who are best friends and who go to a private Catholic school and get involved in "black arts". They act out many of their fantasies which have the expected results for the audience, although the naive girls seemed to be somewhat surprised at them. The ending is amazing and totally unexpected. This is a film worth seeing, although not for prudes or the overly judgmental.

Such a great film. Disturbing, a little sexy and transgressive as well. Any fan of underground genre horror should see this at least once.

In the French movie Don't Deliver Us from Evil (1971) [French: Mais ne nous délivrez pas du mal) early-teens, Anne and Lore, indulge in malicious activities during summer vacation at a convent, which includes teasing seducing much older men. The men, not knowing the rules of seduction, aggressively succumb to the temptation only to be rebuffed by the nymphets.

Nassim Taleb summed it up well when he wrote in Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder, "Just like in matters of seduction, people lend the most to those who need them least."

The Allure of Nymphets
