Stairway to Heaven

Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger United Kingdom, 1946

Superfrog's rating of the film A Matter of Life and Death

Probably the most enjoyment I have had with a film in years. The premise is great, the characters are amazing (particularly the French envoy), the cultural references add nice subtle comedic value without being chauvinistic. The astronomical shots are probably not the most exact, but who cares. Definitely one to watch.
