1946 - A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH, a Powell and Pressburger 40's classic

Viewed this Powell and Pressburger film the other night, for a film almost 70 years old this is still a remarkable achievement.

Filmed in technicolor and black and white with the bulky 3 strip technicolor camera,  Jack Cardiff captured some remarkable images.

The production design by Alfred Junge is very impressive

As an example of film making, this film is a quite a technical achievement.

Finally, credit has to be given to Powell and Pressburger for pulling off this amazing fantasy film.  This is a one of a kind film.

104 minutes.
