As a story, Powell and Pressburger’s metaphysical fable still exerts a hold over the imagination but it really only does so thanks to its awe-inspiring set design and eye-popping cinematography. There is plenty of pleasure in the script too, which sees David Niven’s urbane, stiff-upper-lipped British Air Force Squadron leader Peter Carter survive certain death, fall in love and fight for his life in a court of the afterlife. But this superb new 4k restoration allows us to appreciate the film’s audacious and seamless transitions from Technicolor to monochrome, courtesy of the great Jack Cardiff.
