"A curiously fascinating psychological study of the physical and spiritual tribulations that overwhelm five Protestant missionary nuns in the remote fastness of the Himalayas is unfolded with considerable dramatic emphasis in Black Narcissus."(pryor,1947) its a film that is better to read up upon before watching so that you get a better understanding of the way the film come across as it can be strange and hard to understand. "Five Anglo-Catholic nuns open a school and a hospital . It prospers until a series of mishaps turn the villagers against the nuns. Finally Sister Ruth becomes mad and attacks the mother superior only to bring about her own death."(Priya,2001)
