Powell & Pressburger, UK, 101 minutes., in English without Subtitles
Winner of two Academy Awards for cinematography and art design. In this visually stunning, and dramatically compelling film about the conflict between the spirit and the flesh, a group of Anglican nuns attempt to establish a school and hospital in the Himalayas, in buildings that formerly housed a harem. But the sisters find the sensual atmosphere unsettling, while isolation, extreme weather, altitude, and culture clashes all conspire against the well-intentioned nuns as they begin to become unnerved. Designed and photographed with an almost breathtaking sense of beauty.
