Fully restored and back on the big screen from 18 May 2012. Every time I revisit The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, which is once or twice a year, it grows - it becomes richer. With every passing interval of time - and that's what the film is about, after all - it seems to have become more resonant, more moving, more profound. I'm fascinated by the unusual choices of Powell and Pressburger, and by the storytelling. You could say that it's the epic of an ordinary life. And what you retain from this epic is an overpowering sense of warmth and love and friendship, of shared humor and tenderness, and a lasting impression of the most eloquent sadness. - Martin Scorsese
