Black narcissus by Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger 1947 - Film Review 8 space and environment

Image
Figure 1 In 1947 Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger directors of  A Canterbury Tale (1944), The Tales of Hoffmann (1951), The Red Shoes (1948) and The Small Back Room (1949) Wanted to create a story based on a novel by Rumer Godden, so they enlisted the help of Alfred Junge (a production designer) To help crates of the film and make the story come to life.

The narrative of black narcissus is about five nuns that go to a mountainside village to help the sick and children to learn and heal.
