Black Narcissus

A group of nuns 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 group of Anglican nuns, led by Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr), are sent to a mountain in the Himalayas. The climate in the region is hostile and the nuns are housed in an odd old palace. They work to establish a school and a hospital, but slowly their focus shifts. Sister Ruth (Kathleen Byron) falls for a government worker, Mr. Dean (David Farrar), and begins to question her vow of celibacy. As Sister Ruth obsesses over Mr. Dean, Sister Clodagh becomes immersed in her own memories of love.


"There's something truly unearthly about this pace of howling winds, yawning chasms and atmosphere thick with temptation. Sanctity, it will be proven, is no match for sin." - Time Out

"Powell's equally extravagant visual style transforms it into a landscape of the mind -- grand and terrible in its thorough abstraction." - Chicago Reader
