For 18 years, Sister Benedetta Carlini (Virginie Efira) lived a penitent and exemplary existence in a 17th century Tuscan convent. Given charge of the abused and recalcitrant novitiate Bartolomea (Daphne Patakia), she's flustered by her protégé's physical attraction... and must deal with the consequences as she reciprocates in kind. Paul Verhoeven's audacious, fact-inspired effort also stars Charlotte Rampling, Lambert Wilson, Olivier Rabourdin. 131 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: French; Subtitles: English. In French with English subtitles.
