Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dazzling fantasy produced in the aftermath of the Second World War, A Matter of Life and Death (1946) is one of the greatest achievements of co-directors Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Starring David Niven as an RAF pilot poised between life and death the film is a haunting meditation on love, grief and the legacy of war, made vivid by remarkable colour photography and set design (including the famous 'stairway to heaven'). Ian Christie, one of the foremost scholars of Powell and Pressburger looks in detail at the making of the film as well as locating it in the broadest traditions of British art.
