Storyline

On the run from the battle-seasoned Lord Bruno for sleeping with his wife, the handsome and willing servant, Massetto, flees to the safety of the woods during the warm and peaceful summer of 1347. There, after a chance encounter with the always boozy but merciful Father Tommasso, the young charmer will find refuge into his convent's sanctuary, on one condition: to pretend he is a deaf-mute. However, Massetto's tempting presence will unavoidably upset the already frail balance of things within the sexually-repressed female realm, as nun after nun desperately seeks an escape from their tedious way of life and an extra reason to molest the charming handyman. In the end, will those cloistered Sisters finally find out what they had been missing out on all these years? Written by Nick Riganas

Irreverent and hilarious medieval comedy romp
30 June 2017 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

In medieval Italy, a young man takes refuge in a convent after fleeing from his master who wishes him dead after he is caught sleeping with his wife.

Now, this was something a bit different to the norm that's for sure! There really isn't a surfeit of medieval comedies about sweary nuns, so this one is in pretty unfarmed territory in a lot of ways. While the unique set-up is definitely in the films favour, what elevates it so much more is the fact that it is that even rarer beast, a modern cinematic comedy that actually has plenty of laughs. The principal reason for this is a great ensemble cast who all do very good work. John C. Reilly is great as Father Tommasso who gets bevvied nightly on the holy wine, Fred Armisen is very funny as Bishop Bartolomeo who pitches up later only to be aghast at the carry on going on at the nunnery and Nick Offerman is hilarious as the obnoxious Lord Bruno, a man who sports an impressive medieval mullet haircut. But best of all are the trio of nuns, played by Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Micucci. All three actresses put in excellent comic performances in wild portrayals of medieval nuns played like modern day city girls. They swear like troopers, throw turnips at the local handyman and seek sex at every given opportunity, culminating with a night-time witch's ceremony. Seemingly this nonsense is based on The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio, although I am sure many liberties must have been taken with the original text. It looks beautiful though with great location cinematography in Tuscany, while it also has a great soundtrack to top it off.

As the old saying goes, this one certainly is not for everyone. Its combination of religion with utterly irreverent humour will rub people up the wrong way for sure, while its bawdy nature will put others off. I personally thought it was a really good laugh though. A comedy film coming at us from a unique perspective. If you are on the look-out for something (a) different and (b) funny then this could be just the ticket.
