This explosive work about the conflict between the spirit and the flesh is the epitome of the sensuous style of Powell and Pressburger.
A group of nuns—played by some of Britain’s finest actresses, including Deborah Kerr, Kathleen Byron, and Flora Robson—struggle to establish a convent in the Himalayas, while isolation, extreme weather, altitude, and culture clashes all conspire to drive the well-intentioned missionaries mad.
A darkly grand film that won Oscars for it's art direction and cinematography , Black Narcissus is one of the greatest achievements by two of cinema’s true visionaries.
