The small back room (Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger)

The small back room

Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Severely wounded during the Second World War, a British bomb disposal expert (Farrar) sinks into depression and alcoholism. Called in to help defuse a new German booby-trapped bomb, his nerves and determination are put to the test. This restrained and intelligent film marked the return of Powell and Pressburger to the screen a year after The Red Shoes.

Flagey, Cinematek
