Die drogenabhängige Sängerin Yolanda Bell flüchtet vor der Polizei in dem Kloster der „demütigen Erlöserinnen“, nachdem ihr Freund Jorge an einer mit giftigem Strychnin versetzten Heroindosis gestorben ist. Die Mutter Oberin des Konvents nimmt allerdings ebenfalls Rauschgift, und auch die übrigen geistlichen Schwestern frönen merkwürdigen Leidenschaften, wie dem Schreiben von erotischen Romanen. (ORF)

Englisch If I didn't know the director's name, I would be convinced that this was a late film by Luis Buñuel, as it has the same choice of subject and directorial style. Pedro Almodóvar, like Buñuel, has a distinct relationship with the Catholic Church and its outdated dogmas, and the director shows the gradual erosion of the church community through the story of several nuns in a crumbling monastery and a singer who has compelling reasons to hide from the police, even in a monastic sanctuary. Party-loving nuns, a priest's romantic infatuation with one of the sisters, very worldly desires of women dressed in black habits, religious visions induced by LSD, and the imprint of a made-up beauty's face as a religious symbol reminiscent of a similar relic of Jesus Christ's image on a shroud all help create Almodóvar's entertaining journey into Catholic modernity. Interesting camera work, traditionally good casting, and impressive acting performances. Pop culture combined with religion creates an attractive and slightly provocative contrast. Overall impression: 80%. ()
