A surprisingly effective thriller for it’s time. Gorgeous sets and cinematography throughout. Very dreamlike at times.
While the story and characters are kind of bland,it's visually amazing.The sets and production design are great and the effects are amazing.
Beautiful coloring and every scene with Sister Ruth is 10/10.
Remarkably dark for it’s time. Strong theme of impulsiveness. Genuinely unsettling performance by a disgruntled nun. Some cannot be saved.
Fantastic movie. Beautiful scenery, brilliant plot, great portrayal of insanity brought on by sexual repression.
Watched this movie for the first time last year and I thought it was a great movie set in the himalayas star performance from Deb Kerr⭐
Extraordinarily mysterious subject matter engulfed in beautiful cinematography
Vibrant, psychological piece about nuns in the Himalayas. Characters pushed to breaking points, but yet has some charm and humor.
Stunningly beautiful. Powell and Pressberger at the peak of their game.
Incredible, fantastic use of performance and visuals to express character, desire and inner conflict. Really amazing
