In this Pedro Almodóvar film, a singer at a low-end nightclub hides out at a convent after her lover dies of a bad dose of drugs, and she meets a group of off-the-wall nuns while in hiding. The nuns range from one who writes sensationalist pulp fiction under a pseudonym to another who takes drugs, and another hooked on masochism. But their private lives and perverse foibles may be in jeopardy when a new mother superior arrives to take charge of the convent. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Mildly engaging, Dark Habits, Almodovar's third features about nuns on the run, is not as satirical or entertaining as his previous or later films.
Possibly the first work to hint at the tender sadness of [Almodóvar's]later phase
Almodóvar on crazy nuns should be as madcap as Peter Jackson was on zombies ( ... ) But the result is a rather low-key affair.
