Cloistered Nun: Runa's Confession
Sisterhood is powerful. Before leaving for a mission in Africa, Runa, a nun, visits her sister three years after entering the convent when her sister stole Runa's boyfriend. Runa comes to forgive and to help her sister make enough money buying and selling some convent property so she can marry. The old boyfriend has new women in his life, but he and the sister tell Runa they're a couple in order to keep the property deal. To make even more money, Runa's sister wheedles large gifts from various men she's stringing along. There are flashbacks to Runa's sexual initiation at the convent. Has this taught meekness to Runa?

Well directed and beautifully photographed, the slightly bumpy editing is the only fault I can find in this super little gem of a 'pink'. This is not my first Japanese nunsploitation and although this is probably my favourite, the nation certainly has a way with them. They certainly appreciate the potency of the religious paraphernalia, sex in front of the alter, crucifix bouncing on bared chest and such like but also seem to have no hang ups at all with regard to what is depicted. The rape of Runa in ripped habit by her American speaking rector seems highly symbolic.
I found the bright and bold sex and violence fun all the way through, it has real style and panache and the ending had me grinning from ear to ear, barely able to resist pressing 'play' once more.
