Powell and Pressburger’s masterpiece begins with a WW2 RAF pilot (Niven) in a damaged bomber speaking to an American radio operator (Hunter) before he jumps out with no parachute; thereafter, he’s caught in a strange limbo as a heavenly tribunal debates his right to live… and love. This warm, wise and witty allegorical fantasy alternates between monochrome and Technicolor, gloriously evident in a 4K restoration.
