I've always thought The Red Shoes was overrated film, but Black Narcissus is a really terrific and gorgeous looking film. It's really about the sexual frustration and repression among a group of nuns in a isolated convent. I really would love to see how a restored Blu Ray version will look. It should pop off the screen
