The result is visually beautiful. The series is solidly acted, occasionally expansive and never something I would ever choose to watch again rather than just checking in on the old friend that is the 1947 film.
Psychologically intense and erotically charged, Black Narcissus doesn't entirely resist the temptation of lurid melodrama, but Diana Rigg brings a little dignity in one of her last roles, as the Mother Superior who sends them off.
Too long to be a movie and too short to satisfy as a miniseries, this "Black Narcissus" dabbles in being all of the above, and, alas, doesn't fully succeed at any of them. But it doesn't deserve a thumbs-down review, either.
