4.5 out of 10 Heaven and hell
Philip from Dublin, 19 Dec 2009
Maybe one of the greatest British films ever, its still astonishing to look at. A Lancaster pilot is involved in a crash but due to a heavenly mix up is caught somewhere between life and death. Cue some incredibly imaginative visual sequences and a smart witty script. David Niven is fantastic as the cultured pilot trying to talk himself out of heaven. A timeless classic.

June (Hunter), a young radio operator, picks up his signal, and in the final moments of the young flyer's life, a special bond is formed. The next morning washed up on an English beach, Squadron Leader Peter Carter (Niven) is alive,...
