Synopsis

When a World War II pilot bails out of his plane without a parachute, he seems certain to die. But a heavenly messenger has made a mistake, and the airman miraculously survives - only to find that Heaven doesn't give up so easily. Combining comedy, romance and drama, this gorgeous technicolor fantasy from director Michael Powell puts the emphasis on celebrating life over fearing death, an important message for an audience that was then newly emerged from a terrible war.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
