Serving as an inspiration for BARBIE in everything from the beautiful matte painted sets to the dramatic use of lighting, A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH tells the story of a British airman (Niven) who crashes during a WWII bombing mission but miraculously survives and soon falls in love. Unfortunately, according to Heaven, it really was his time but he is granted the opportunity to plead for a second chance at life.
Double Feature with ALL THAT JAZZ
“I’m looking forward to a few of the Romance/fantasy films in the Barbie’s Roots series that I’ve been meaning to see. A Matter of Life and Death is worth checking out for its ambition and imagination in storytelling, sets, and images.” – Markelle
