This is one of my favourite films, a wartime production by The Archers who were Michael Powell and Eric Pressburger. They also made One of our Aircraft is Missing and postwar, I Know Where I'm Going and the Black Narcissus.
I am intrigued that the most extensive (but much less than the whole film) extracts on Youtube have French subtitles. Canterbury is popular with French visitors, and the French do appreciate the subtleties of cinema which The Archers had in abundance.

I saw this film for the first time earlier this year--it's marvelous. Powell and Pressburger were a marvelous filmmaking team, responsible for some of my absolute favorites (The Life and Times of Colonel Blimp, A Matter of Life and Death, I Know Where I'm Going, Black Narcissus ... Simply marvelous cinema.
