A deliciously sophisticated romantic fantasy created by the British writing-directing-producing team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger set in England during the Second World War stars David Niven, Roger Livesey, Raymond Massey and Kim Hunter. It was chosen for the first ever Royal Film Performance. “Undoubtedly one of the best films ever made – cheerful, whimsical, fantastical and full of human warmth and cheer. It’s rare that I get to enjoy the sublime perfection of a team of filmmakers in such complete command of their craft. ” EYE FOR FILM (UK).
