| Are they lesbians?
I believe there's a little mistake in the previous comment. Carmen Maura doesn't play the nun who fakes the stigmata. She's Mercedes Sampietro's accomplice on that. As to the matter of lesbianism, I'm not quite sure that they are sexually-active lovers. They love each other, there's no discussion about it but I think being XVI century's Spanish nuns they don't even conceive the idea of being engaged in a carnal-love relationship. They are two women who loves each other beyond reason or lust. Sex is just the consequence to all that. I don't agree either on the motive to fake the stigmata. In my opinion they do it not just to stay together, although that has an important weight on the matter, but to guarantee the subsistence of the community (wich is the word they use when they talk about the nun's sisterhood). I think power, subsistence and greed, as well as love, are central in this film. This is the problem with masterpieces, they have so much subtext as viewers or readers opinions on them. It's what caught one's eye what one sees.
