Stairway to Heaven

Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger United Kingdom, 1946

Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film A Matter of Life and Death

I admire storytellers who aren't afraid of implementing supernatural elements in their stories. This film is basically a love story/ war drama but it opens like a sci-fi film with beautiful cosmic images and then there is a heaven for fallen soldiers and a French fairy-tale character who time travels. What genre would you classify this film in?
