Synopsis

A scandalous lesbian affair rocks a quiet convent in 17th century Tuscany. Benedetta, a nun visited by increasingly sensual and violent visions of Jesus, arouses the suspicions of abbess Sister Felicita. Distrust grows when new arrival Bartolomea develops a dangerous attraction for Benedetta.

MUBI's take

From showgirls to nuns: the latest sensation from the king of erotic thrillers immerses us in the religious visions and illicit desires of a 17th-century mystic abbess. Sensual, elegant and scandalous, Benedetta offers up a perversely provocative critique of religious hypocrisy.
