Emeric Pressburger, Michael Powell / GB, 1947 / 99 min.
This steamy psychological portrait of five nuns who open a mission in the Himalayas and succumb to repressed erotic desires and madness, is considered one of the highlights of British cinema. Oscars for camerawork, art direction and set design.
