A Matter of Life & Death (U)
This romantic fantasy from Powell and Pressburger stars David Niven as Peter, a WWII pilot who miraculously survives a plane crash and falls in love with an American radio operator (Kim Hunter), only to be summoned to the afterlife by a heavenly ‘Conductor’ (Marius Goring). Trapped between life and death Peter must plead with a celestial court for his life and his love.
Now all the more heavenly thanks to a new restoration, this timeless classic remains the ultimate reminder of the power, beauty, and art of cinema.
Directed by Michael Powell.
