“A story of damaged faith and rising sexual hysteria set among a group of nuns in India who are working to convert a sultan’s palace into a convent. The film’s lush, mountainous India, full of sensual challenges and metaphorical chasms, was created entirely in the studio, with the help of matte artist Peter Ellenshaw. Powell’s equally extravagant visual style transforms it into a landscape of the mind.” – Dave Kehr (Chicago Reader)
