Synopsis

Flavia the heretic aka Flavia, la monaca musulmana Check on IMDB

Witness the most notoriously graphic and nasty descent into the nunsploitation genre with Gianfranco Mingozzi’s unforgettable masterpiece of shock cinema that is Flavia The Heretic.

Set during 15th Century Italy when brutality was wielded mercilessly in the name of God, young Flavia (Florinda Bolkan) is imprisoned in a monastery by her tyrannical father. Rather than the years of quiet contemplation she might expect, the sexually frustrated Flavia instead gets a crash course in hell on earth as rape, torture, castration, bondage and worse becomes her world but that is nothing compared to what will become of her!

Beautifully filmed by Alfio Contini (The Night Porter) and boasting a score by Oscar-winning composer Nicola Piovani this disturbingly cruel exploration of religiously condoned sexual violence is as well made as it is sadistic on the senses.
