black narcissus

this is a perfect movie.
from imdb: "Five young British nuns are invited to move to a windy "palace", former house of the concubines of an old general, in the top of a mountain in Mopu, Himalaya, to raise the convent of Saint Faith Order, a school for children and girls, and an infirmary for the local dwellers.The lonely and exotic place and the presence of Mr. `Dean awake the innermost desires in the flesh of the sisters, and Sister Ruth becomes mad with the temptation."
it has all my favourite things:
cool costumes
lovely jewellery
+ it is by micahel powell, the guy who made peeping tom & a matter of life and death!
