Sister Emanuelle / Suor Emanuelle (1977)

3.5 out of 5

Laura Gemser returns as Emanuelle and this time under the direction of Giuseppe Vari. She has the calling and has become a nun in a convent school which actually appears to be Balsorano Castle, the location for The Lickerish Quartet.

Emanuelle faces temptation in the form of a manipulative bisexual minx of a student played by Mónica Zanchi who uses sex and guile to draw the sister and almost everyone she meets off the path of righteousness.

The film is well scripted and surprisingly quick paced fun as a lighthearted and at times comedic convent sexy that is enjoyable on so many levels.

The score is by Stelvio Cipriani and that alone is worth the price of admission and a jaw dropping finale will surely entertain genre fans even if it does use an overly familiar device.
