The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

Directed by Emeric Pressburger & Michael Powell

With bravura performances from Roger Livesey, Anton Walbrook and Deborah Kerr, this dazzling wartime epic looks back 40 years from 1943, raising complex questions about nationhood, exile and tradition. Often considered to be the greatest British film
