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

Description: British nun Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) is chosen by her order to establish a school and dispensary in the Himalayas. Among those selected to accompany her on this mission are Sister Briony (Judith Furse), a capable take-charge nun; Sister Phillipa (Flora Robson), a nun with a green thumb to handle the garden, and Sister Ruth (Kathleen Byron), a moody nun who is frequently sick or depressed. Sister Clodagh's superior believes that she is too young to assume such a large leadership role in a strange place but wishes her well. When the sisters arrive in the place, they are stunned to discover that the wind is blowing hard all ... (more)

Movie Reviews (51-100) (50 movies items)

" 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 tempted by t"

" 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.
