Cannes Classics - Tributes

BLACK NARCISSUS

Directed by : Michael POWELL , Emeric PRESSBURGER

Year of production : 1947 Country : UNITED KINGDOM Length : 102 minutes

Synopsis

Based on a novel by Rumer Godden, Black Narcissus stars Deborah Kerr and Jean Simmons as nuns dedicated to the Indian mission in which they work. Obstacles in the life of a nun’s community high in the Himalayas range from a cynical British Agent to suspicious natives, and the arduous terrain surrounding them.

The mission prospers, but often at the expense of spiritual progress. A sick child dies, a mission pupil elopes and one of the nuns falls to her death after an emotional breakdown. The sisters finally retreat from the mission and the menacing mountains, but with the knowledge that their work has not been devoid of good results.
