Based on Rumer Godden's novel, this Oscar®-winning film tells the story of five Protestant missionary nuns trying to establish a school in the desolate Himalayas. The women are plagued by uncertainties and worldly desires. Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger create a dramatic study of the age-old conflict between the spirit and the flesh, set against the grandeur of the snowcapped Himalayan peaks. Director Michael Powell and Black Narcissus fan Martin Scorsese offer audio commentary about the film.
