Flavia, la Monaca Musulmana (The Heretic) (The Rebel Nun) (Flavia, Priestess of Violence)
A young girl in the 13th century is sent to a nunnery in Portugal. There she is subjected to torture, rape and whippings, but she escapes with a Jewish man named Abraham. She soon takes on a Muslim lover, who leads an invading army that castrates rapists. Amazingly enough, some of this story is actually based on historical fact. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Heretic can be crude with bizarre flashes of brutality, but it remains potent and thought-provoking, reflecting on a bound existence with unusual patience and respect for its audience."
