Blithe Spirit

David Lean Großbritannien, 1945

Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Geisterkomödie

David Lean's delightful adaptation of Noel Coward's play may be a bit of a departure for Lean, but it's nevertheless a fun, if frothy film. Telling the story of a wealthy man whose seance with a loony medium accidentally conjures the ghost of his dead wife, BLITHE SPIRIT is a spirited and entertaining post-war comedy that served as an antidote for a nation pulling themselves out of the rubble of WWII.
