| Love after death
The film starts with wealthy Micheline Presle (Eva) living her final moments as she is poisoned by evil husband Fernand Fabre (André). At the same time, revolutionary leader Marcello Pagliero (Pierre) is shot dead by a betrayer. Both these characters pass into the next world where they are free to do as they wish. It isn't long before they fall in love and they are given a chance to return to the land of the living for 24 hours to prove their love for each other. However, they both have issues to clear up once they become mortal. If they can overcome these, they will know if they are destined to be with each other.

I like the theme that this film explores, I like how the afterlife is portrayed and I like the story. So, guess what – I recommend the film. The cast are good, perhaps Pagliero overacts in a couple of spots, but so what. Last time I passed into the afterlife, it was exactly like this with the living and dead inhabiting the same streets. OK, that was in a dream but this film compounds my instincts for that particular theory. It's a romantic story that is crammed with intrigue and drama and there are no wasted scenes.
