How about an Italian production called THE INSATIABLES.
Venice in the early seventies. A beautiful nun (with a lyrically-scored slow motion childhood trauma, of course) is invited by a stern countess to her magnificent Venetian villa to look after the delicate wife of the countess' decadent brother who divides his time between terrorizing his wife, antagonizing his sister, having scandalous philosophical arguments with visiting clergy and intellectuals at the dinner table, and hosting perverted, orgiastic parties with a mix of drugged out jet-setters and would-be hippies. As the nun tries to avoid but is eventually coerced into witnessing and participating in all sorts of perverse encounters in the various rooms, corridors, and alcoves of the villa (cue insert footage - the content and completeness depending on the territory the film is shown in), she realizes that she is not losing her admittedly weak identity but discovering a smarter and stronger sense of self that can whip the household into shape. Little does she realize that things are not exactly as they seem between the cruel husband, victimized wife, and disapproving older sister (who of course has ambiguous flashes of affection for the nun).
It'll have to be in scope, of course, with a breathy, sometimes yowling, score that alternates between the romantic and the psychedelic. There will be distorted wide angles, whip pans and zooms (sometimes combined), filters to simulate druggy delirium, and a mix of gothic and pop-art set design and decor.
