Black Narcissus, Blu-ray


A classic Powell/Pressburger tale of sexual awakening based on the Rumer Godden novel.

A group of British nuns are sent into the Himalayas to set up a mission in what was once the harem's quarters of an ancient palace.

The clear mountain air, the unfamiliar culture and the unbridled sensuality of a young prince (Sabu) and his beggar-girl lover (Jean Simmons) begin to play havoc with the nuns' long-suppressed emotions.

Whilst the young Mother Superior, Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr), fights a losing battle for order, the jaunty David Farrar falls in love with her, sparking uncontrollable jealousy in another nun, Sister Ruth (Kathleen Byron).
