Produced by the inventive team known as The Archers: Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. A Matter of Life and Death, also known as Stairway to Heaven is the remarkable British fantasy film that became the surprise hit of 1946. The superbly crafted story is a tale of the power of love against "the powers that be". However, its deception lies in the complexity of its "is it real or is it imaginary?" premise.
