Powell and Pressburger’s magnificent fantasy of undying love. After a young pilot miraculously survives an airplane accident, he falls in love with an American radio operator. When heavenly officials discover their mistake, they hold a trial to determine the everlasting fate of the pilot and his beloved. Alternating between stunning black and white for scenes of the celestial trial and achingly beautiful Technicolor for those on Earth, Jack Cardiff’s cinematography completes the mastery of Powell and Pressburger’s vision for an astounding cinematic feast that will feed your eyes and your heart.
