Reality and fantasy are delightfully commingled in this superb film about a World War II pilot who claims he was accidentally chosen to die and must now plead for his life in a heavenly court. Pilot David Niven (Around the World in 80 Days) gets on the radio as his plane is going down and shares what he believes to be his last words with an American WAC (Kim Hunter, A Streetcar Named Desire), with whom he falls hopelessly in love. Filmed in both black and white and color with imaginative production design, this new 4K digital restoration of A Matter of Life and Death (also known as Stairway to Heaven) is written and directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, directors of The Red Shoes and Black Narcissus.
