A Matter of Life and Death (1946)

British airman Peter Carter jumps out of his damaged plane without a parachute and instead of dying as he should have done he miraculously lands on a beach. Because of this he must appeal his case for the right to live in front of a celestial jury in the Other World.

Filmed party in black and white and partly in beautiful colour, it has been judged to be one of the greatest British movies ever made.
