A classic

Back in the 40’s, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger made some really lavish productions during which what was considered by many movie viewers as the Golden Age of British cinema. With this movie, once again, the production value was quite impressive and it is hard to believe that the whole thing was shot in a studio and not on location. Indeed, the decors, the sets, the colors were just ama... read more

" The Ups: Breathtakingly good cinematography highlights this fantastic movie about what happens to nuns in a remote area of the Himalayas and they start to become sexually frustrated. Deborah Kerr and Kathleen Byron are too beautiful to be nuns so it is no wonder it exists porn for this genre. Jean Simmons is even cuter as a Indian teenager, but leading actor David Farrar is very weak but somehow it just gloriously shows how desperate and sexually frustrated these nuns are when they even get tem"

" Amidst stunning set pieces and the expected witty script, powerhouse directing/writing/producing team Powell and Pressburger brings us a mystical, exotic tale, which Powell considered the most erotic film he'd ever made. And it's true; considering the film is about a bunch of nuns on a religious mission, there's a surprising amount of sexuality simmering beneath the surface. "
