How better to explore desire, hysteria, temptation and sexuality than in an isolated convent, perched on a mountaintop in the Himalayas of India ? Five religious women go to a lost mission, where they open a dispensary and are soon faced with their intense emotions and feelings of temptation. Unbounded sensuality always suggested, the superb images made with exceptional lyricism, coulours and decors, Michael Powell 's masterpiece has become a lesbian cinematic classic.
