A Story to Storm Your Heart! Drama at the top of the world...where winds of the exotic past sweep men and women to strange and fascinating adventure... Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) leads a group of Anglican nuns to a remote Himalayan range of mountains, there to set up a mission in an abandoned harem. This is her first position of authority and she finds both her physical and her spiritual limits being taxed as she has to maintain order and discipline in a claustrophobically hostile environment. Slowly but surely, however, the privations and hardship they must endure, the extremes of climate and the peculiar amorality of the local natives all combine to slowly corrupt the women's faith, pushing them further into jealousy, anger and madness... This award-winning, tense psychological drama was written, produced and directed by Michal Powell and Emeric Pressburger, two of the most influential and acclaimed film-makers of all time. Black Narcissus was sumptuously shot by the legendary Jack Cardiff, who won both the Golden glibe and Oscar for Best Cinematography in 1947, producing a film wherein each frame has been likened to a perfectly-taken still photograph. A further Oscar was won by Alfred Junge for his astounding production designs and Deborah Kerr won a New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actress.
