Storyline

On the run from the battle-seasoned Lord Bruno for sleeping with his wife, the handsome and willing servant, Massetto, flees to the safety of the woods during the warm and peaceful summer of 1347. There, after a chance encounter with the always boozy but merciful Father Tommasso, the young charmer will find refuge into his convent's sanctuary, on one condition: to pretend he is a deaf-mute. However, Massetto's tempting presence will unavoidably upset the already frail balance of things within the sexually-repressed female realm, as nun after nun desperately seeks an escape from their tedious way of life and an extra reason to molest the charming handyman. In the end, will those cloistered Sisters finally find out what they had been missing out on all these years? Written by Nick Riganas

An unconventional comedy . . .
10 October 2017 | by jryu-20952See all my reviews

EVERYONE in this movie has is repressing their 'dressed roles' and desires an alternate life. Little Hours is more than the antics of foul mouthed nun trio. It is a modern comedy set in 13th century. And what a refreshing modern comedy it is.

The charm of the humour in the movie is that the situations everyone find themselves in. The comedy is less about what is actually being said but the extreme hypocrisy of what we preach against our true desires. Events mostly take place at a convent but religion is never the central message. Little Hours rather exposes crudity of humanity under the neat veils & robes.

None of the acting is really Oscar worthy; they appear almost amateur-like and that is part of the charm. Music in simple and un-intrusive. Story is straight forward but contains pleasant surprises.

Little Hours is not, and probably not intended to be, for general audience. If you like Lost in Translation, Life Aquatic, Nacho Libre, etc., you will love this movie. If you are offended by the religious contents (or lack thereof) in this movie, I recommend watching 'Spotlight' first.
