This film is a masterpiece of cinema. It is perhaps Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's finest film, in their great body of work of English filmmaking. The audience was spellbound throughout this dazzling visual and musical experience, which features signature performances by Norma Shearer and Anton Walbrook. It has been beautifully restored by the Film Foundation and UCLA Film & Television Archives. It's a must-see for filmmakers.
