One of the all-time cinema masters, Luis Buñuel returned to Spain after a 20-year exile to make what many consider among his most scandalous and brilliant films. The titular nun, played by Silvia Pinal, arrives at the estate of her lustful uncle, played by Fernando Rey, who promptly tries to take advantage of the shy wallflower. But after her guilt-stricken uncle commits suicide, the virtuous Pinal welcomes a band of ne'er-do-wells, beggars and prostitutes, an act of charity that backfires spectacularly as the house descends into drunken debauchery that includes a hilariously mockery of The Last Supper. A mischievous masterpiece.
