Movie Review- Stairway to Heaven

Post by Soylent Blue on Mon Jan 31, 2011 8:09 pm

Something interesting about this film is that it has two titles, It can be called A Matter of Life and Death or a little more commonly Stairway to Heaven. It begins with the main character Peter Carter, a WWII RAF pilot, who is played by David Niven. Peter is inside a harmed plane and has no choice but to jump out without a parachute. Next to him is his dead friend Roger who he may encounter again later. While this is all happening he is making radio contact with ground controller, June (Kim Hunter). In the heat of the moment they talk about how they could love each other if he wasn't about to die. He then jumps out of the plummeting plane before it crashes. Something remarkable happens, a day later he finds himself alive on the beach. He soon meets up with his love interest and of course they fall for each other. But wait a minute... somethings wrong, a mistake was made. Mr. Carter should be dead, at least according to the rules of heaven. He is met by a strange man that he can only see that wants to bring him up to heaven where he belongs. He also meets a doctor/friend who wants to keep him on Earth. Peter wants to stay on Earth so that he may wed June. Eventually he is brought to a court in heaven where his fait will be determined.
The artsy scenes that take place in heaven are done smartly in black and white while the scenes that take place on Earth are done in color. This is a captivating film that will have you hoping for Peter to the end. The witty and never phased Peter deserves a shout-out for brilliantly capturing his part and not completely stealing the movie. The effects of this underrated 1946 masterpiece will still dazzle you with it's originality and impact. This film also uses a great amount of subtle humor. I can not recommend this film enough 5 out of 5 Like a Star @ heaven's! You will enjoy this movie thoroughly. Get the gist?
