In it the director managed to go beyond the usual stories of unrequited love in the scenery of the Renaissance and that is not too loud and clear, but still start a conversation about honor, duty, conscience, responsibility before God and men. The price, which people can and should pay for his and others’ happiness, and the sacrifice that has to bear, redeeming momentary weakness. Word that since the Ancient Greece is the essence and foundation of high tragedy, and that, as a rule, are afraid to offend the authors of genre cinema and literature. And let the “Story of A Cloistered Nun” these eternal questions almost to the finals are in the far background, but at the crucial moment, they still come to the forefront and display the picture on a wider and lighter gauge.
It all started with Signor Paolelly pretty ordinary. Carmela young, in love with as a young and poor Giuliano refuses to marry a man with whom betrothed since infancy. Enraged father, whose honor was outraged, sending her daughter to the monastery with the strictest possible regulations.
