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.

Description: British nun Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) is chosen by her order to establish a school and dispensary in the Himalayas.

Movieline's 100 Best Female Characters in Film (98 movies items)

" Sister Clodagh played by Deborah Kerr "A sublime notion of feminine spirituality, she's the sophisticated and very superior Mother Superior who comes from her Western tradition to a wild Eastern place and is shaken down by the rakish Englishman who is the man of her dreams and nightmares"."

Mack's Movie Diary 2020 (40 movies items)

"A really odd film that is especially striking for being made in 1947and somehow packs an emotional intensity, lushness is color and atmosphere, and simmering tension that really makes it stand out in a crowd. I am tempted to watch it again to pay more attention to the dialogue because for all the cliche of a convent having repressed sexual desire, there is a lot more going on here. I wish the movie went a little deeper into the other nun characters as they all seemed prime for fascinating streng"
