A Matter of Life and Death

A wartime romance, metaphysical drama and joyous adventure, this is one of Powell and Pressburger’s towering achievements.

When RAF pilot Peter Carter (David Niven) plummets towards the English Channel, confiding his last thoughts to an American army radio operator (Kim Hunter), a fantastical series of events see him conducted to a celestial court to plead for his life. Emeric Pressburger’s wildly imaginative script is matched by Michael Powell’s stunning visuals in this timeless classic.
