Members’ Cine Club – A Matter of Life and Death

7th December 2012 at 20:00:00 in the Main Theatre


Barn Cine Club


The December film will be A Matter of Life and Death.

Running time: 104 minutes.

Our December screening will be as requested by our Chairman – Bob Thomson.

He’ll be presenting it and why he feels it worthy of showing. We asked him to comment on why this is a favourite of his and why he wants to share it with the membership – here is his response:

“I suggested some time ago that the film club look at having members suggest a film and then have the ‘opportunity’ to introduce it and explain why it’s a personal favourite. My bluff has been called.

This film has been a personal favourite of mine for many years, and as recently as 2004 was nominated as the second greatest British film ever made, a meaningless accolade, but recognition of its importance in the history of British and indeed world film making.

Made in 1946 it retains a freshness and vitality that are as impressive today as over 65 years ago. Few films before or since have achieved the incredible scale of A Matter of Life and Death, and encompassed so many themes, concepts and ideas. The film was not only ahead of its time but almost of another time and, whilst a simple love story at heart, can bear repeated viewing and is still discussed and analysed to this day.

If you have not seen this film before, I do sincerely believe you are in for a treat; if you have, please come and see it again on the big screen where it belongs. I, hopefully, will have a few other comments to make and a short video presentation.”


Admission is free to members of the Barn.
