Film Series: Black Narcissus

1947. UK. Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger. With Deborah Kerr. 100 min.

A sisterhood of nuns setting up a convent in the Himalayas start to lose their composure when a short-shorts-clad Englishman drops by. Piety isn’t made easy with Powell and Pressburger gracefully exposing sublimated desire and turning the literally breathtaking scenery into a stage for mounting passion.
