A Matter of Life and Death
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater
DirS. Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger. 1946, 104 mins. New DCP Restoration. David Niven, Kim Hunter, Roger Livesey, Raymond Massey. David Niven plays a WWII British airman who cheats death after being shot down but finds himself in the courts of Heaven defending his right to live. This is a stunning new restoration of the Technicolor classic, which Martin Scorsese called “a romantic, daring and beautifully realized allegorical fantasy, one of the best of the Powell/Pressburger movies.” With its unique blend of fantasy and naturalism, and its bold visual style, this is one of the most exciting cinema rediscoveries of the past year.
