Black Narcissus

Why are they called
the servants of Mary ?

Is the superior sister
called Mary ?

Ask her.
Here she comes.

Go noW.
I will speak to her alone.

- Good morning.
- Good morning.

- I want to see the superior sister.
- I am the sister superior.

Oh. I want to be
a student here with you.

I want to study
a lot of learning.

I want to study mathematics,
history, poetry and languages.

I have a note from my uncle
to ask you to encourage me.

I'm very sorry.
We only teach children and young girls.

- Why ?
- Convents don't teach men pupils.

That's not very polite to men.
We don't mean it that way.
It's the custom.

Convents are for girls.
The brotherhoods are for men.

Jesus Christ was a man.
He took the shape of a man.
But you don't need
to count me as a man.

I'm only interested
in studious things.

Please, Sister. I've written out
my timetable. May I read it to you ?

""5:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.,
algebra with the mathematical sister.

""8..00 a.m. to 1 0..00 a.m.,
rel/g/on, Chr/st/an/ty
w/th the scr/ptural s/ster.

"" 1 0..00 a.m., art.
"" 1 :00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.,
French and Russian with the French
and Russian sisters, if any.

3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.,
