Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, finds out that his uncle Claudius killed his father to obtain the throne, and plans revenge. A serious epidemic of cholera is hitting the region.

Maria a 16 years old novice leaves her convent and returns her home to avoid contamination. Here she finds a difficult situation, in fact her stepmother and her half-sisters prevent Maria to live the normal life of a teenager.

In their minds Maria is the promised “bride of God” and a regular life for her is inappropriate. Nino, her handsome neighbor, falls in love for Maria who isn’t indifferent to him.

But when Maria comes back to her convent the way to become nun is compelled. Now Maria can understand Sister Agata, and realizes she became mad cause a lost and impossible love like the one between Maria and Nino. There has been a widespread opinion that Franco Zeffirelli’s best films include only opera or Shakespeare productions. However, if you get to know the director better, you’ll soon find out how simplified this view is.


As a fan of Zeffirelli, I studied his filmography and have recently received the copy of this movie, perhaps one of the least known films by the maestro, yet, indeed, one of the most beautiful and underrated movies where heart truly reigns over reason and where affection conquers indifference. A considerably simple story by Giovanni Vergathe famous Sicilian realist writer, is showed in a convincing and genuine manner. Zeffirelli not only highlights the aspect of growing youthful love, a process of “acquiring” the nature around and within, but also supplies us with a wide range of factors concerning Sicily, its society, its customs and the powerful, influential Church.

Novices meant to be the “daughters of God” have a chance to get to know the world, its joys, its beauties as well as its temptations. Feelings of straightforward piety and certain spirituality turn to feelings of doubt and confusion. Nevertheless, despite the whole stormy nights of heart that the main character, Maria Angela Bettisexperiences, Zeffirelli pays final tribute to Love, to individual greatness found in the superiority of feeling to reason.

The director sometimes becomes pretty difficult and profound in the development of the character. Yet, what I particularly liked here is the tension around Maria’s spiritual way, the reality of a growing feeling, emotions, finding the world strange and, despite of that, starting to love it. Yes, the movie is very emotional and these emotions range from admiration, joy to sentimentality, sometimes even nostalgia. But how are the strong feelings revealed? The most successful aspect of the movie here is, besides all the rest, its visual impact.

This is the Zeffirelli we know best with his glamor of images, “moving work of art”, tribute to nature both the universal and human. Who can possibly skip the moment Maria is led by the dog through a lovely garden to the waterfall where Nino is taking a bath with his friends? This is art to be able to show the story as the bliss of perception and Zeffirelli is really good at that. He becomes once again as sentimentally sweet as in his St Francis movie and as dramatically romantic as in his Shakespearean love story We see the people’s lives so deeply affected by the church, the celebrations of graduating accompanied with the hymn “Te Deum Laudamus” and the focus on carnal sins considered by Padre Nunzio to be the very core of inferno.

The figure of the priest stirs up anger but also fear. Someone might say that Zeffirelli becomes critical of the Church. However, after longer inspection, you realize that he is not critical of church in general but of a certain idea of religiosity and a wrong and harmful practice of a particular devotion.


The powerful scene when Maria beats herself is this representation of a psyche under pressure within the fanatically formed conscience. Finally, a mention must be made of the most important aspect in any movie, the cast. The performances are exceptional here.

It’s again one of these films that you watch with pleasure because you see true artists in the cast. Angela Bettis portrays her role intensely, truthfully, emotionally. She sometimes appears to be on the verge of overacting but does not cross the border.

She is unforgettable throughout, particularly in her moments of temptations, fears and longing. Johnathon Schaech fapinera very good as Nino – a sort of idea of man Zeffirelli developed in many of his movies. Schaech is a combination of Leonard Whiting’s striking innocence and Domingo’s attractive macho.

At the same time, Bettis and Schaech retain the chemistry so much needed in their roles. Valentina Cortese and Frank Finlay are also unforgettable and very good as strict church representatives. The film does not give any answer giovanni it is better for the character to be the daughter of God or become the wife of beloved man.
