Suor Emanuelle (1977)

Emanuelle’s latest assignment is as a nun at a school for trouble girls. The arrival of a promiscuous new girl named Monica (Mónica Zanchi) brings back memories of Emanuelle’s sordid past. Will Emanuelle be able to fight temptation or will she return to her sinful old ways?

Directed by Giuseppe Vari and style wise it is in direct contrast to the D’Amato films. Being that this Emanuelle entry is also part nunsploitation it is only fitting that the look of the film looks more like the soft lit look nunsploitation films are known for and not the flamboyant style the is evident in every D’Amato Emanuelle film. The films plot will it starts off start forward enough tends to drift off into dream like territories which at times make it hard to discern what is real and what is not.

Even though this is titled as an Emanuelle film the real star of this film is the character named Monica who is played by an actress named Mónica Zanchi who would later also star in the film Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals. The most interesting part of the film is how Emanuelle is the sexually repressed one while Monica is the free spirited sex nymph. Gabriele Tinti has a brief role as a murdered on the run and just his luck he has found a horny teenage girl to provide him with shelter and love.

Laura Gemser does a wonderful job playing the other side of the coin and even though she spends a great deal of time clothed in her nun outfit that doesn’t stop her sexuality form oozing forth. Gemser is like a force of nature and no matter if she is clothed or naked she always has the ability to ignite the screen with desire. Stelvio Cipriani’s score sound like Mozart meets progressive rock with its spaced out arrangements and motifs.
