    Couldn't believe it was made in 1947, then couldn't believe it was all shot in England (the outdoor scenes in a garden in Sussex!) Great stuff, will definitely be seeking out more Powell and Pressburger

    Part of 25 Unseen Classics to watch in 2015 . 15/25

    Something is not sitting right with me this year, and it's do with the fact I have yet to see my entire list of 25 Unseen Classics to watch in 2015 list.

    But this was fabulous and shows another real consistency with Powell and Pressburger.

    Incredibly striking film from the Powell and Pressburger duo.

    Always heard about it, knew nothing. Not bad. Was like Sound of Music melodrama. The end transformation of the "bad nun" was very cool. Great cinematography, bizarre casting.

    I love how little is explained in this film. It is something that bugs me about modern mainstream stuff. When things are planted so we feel like we know them before, or at the latest, at the same time as the character. Makes us larger than ourselves, turns cinema into an exercise of omniscience. Turned around like this, a place being larger than the people AND the viewer, it feels as if I am being nudged by the filmmaker toward discovering the Sublime. It's so Romantic – not romantic, Romantic.

    Haunting images surround a story that is rare, both for its time and now.
