Arrows of Desire : Films of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger Paperback
by Ian Christie
Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger formed one of the greatest creative partnerships in the history of British cinema - The Archers.
Their films were often controversial - Churchill tried to suppress the release of "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp".
Later, "The Red Shoes" and "The Tales of Hoffman" startled and enchanted cinema audiences with their use of colour, form amd music.
However, in the last ten years the magic, poetry and passion of their work has been acknowledged around the world and they are firmly in the pantheon of film masters.
This book is a comprehensive analysis of their films and is a useful guide to their work.
