BLACK NARCISSUS
1947, Park Circus/MGM, 99 min, UK, Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s exquisite (and surprisingly erotic) drama of spiritual devotion and earthly temptation stars the luminous Deborah Kerr as a nun nearly overwhelmed by the physical beauty of her new Himalayan home, and the worldly charms of rugged David Farrar. Widely hailed as one of the most visually stunning films ever made (courtesy of Jack Cardiff’s Oscar-winning cinematography). Co-starring Sabu, Jean Simmons, Flora Robson. "Color, sex, exotic locations - it was a big hit in austerity-stricken England!" - Michael Powell
