Die Liebesbriefe einer portugiesischen Nonne

Jesús Franco Switzerland, 1977

Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun

A sleazy, dark nun-exploitation movie. Susan Hemingway is totally believable as a young adorable girl who gets forced into sexual acts with the Dark One. William Berger is one of the wicked, meanest and sickest priests ever seen and Ana Zanatti is the best sleazy Susan Sarandon look-alike I have seen on film. This is one of Franco's best films. Only the ending feels wrong.
