Was Harry Potter killed and then brought back to life?

  • In the last movie, Harry was struck by the Avada Kedavra spell cast by Voldemort. Really, he should be dead. But obviously he was not dead because when Narcissa Malfoy (Draco's mother) asked about the life/death of her son, there was a pause hinting that Harry was talking to the woman. And knowing Malfoy is not dead, in return, the woman declared Harry was dead.

    However, one should really be dead if struck by the Avada Kedavra spell. Does this indicate the work of the Resurrection Stone?

    I hate the movie for not explaining this.

    @Javier: I hate people which refer to the movie and not to the book! :-)

    I finished the book 4 years ago ( I think it is 4 ) and forget about the details.

    I hate people who think books should be necessary to understand the movies.

    Well I might as well continue the theme.. I hate how people who have only seen the film are under the impression they are knowledgeable enough to answer questions about anything other than the film and only the film. But in the end as long as they enjoy [it] that's what matters. Even if they're wrong which if it's only based on the film they probably are; and of course the books are always better though my brother makes a valid point: if he isn't going to read the book then the book isn't 'better' in a sense (though I don't agree entirely with that).

    No, Harry dropped the Stone before his encounter with Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest.
    If he survived, it's because :

    When Harry met Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest, Voldemort used the Killing Curse on him almost immediately, but only destroyed the Horcrux, rendering his scar "normal." What was not revealed to Voldemort was that when he used Harry's blood three years prior to gain himself a new body, the blood passed Harry's mother's protection to Voldemort and anchored Harry to the living world through Voldemort. Harry was merely knocked to the ground and feigned death. Voldemort, as a result of destroying his soul shard in Harry, was also knocked out
    - Harry Potter wiki, "Tom Riddle" article, "Final battle and death" section

    Why I don't understand why he dropped the stone. It is one of the 3 deathly hallows!

    There's also the fact that the Elder Wand's allegiance was to Harry, not Voldemort. When Voldemort cast the Killing Curse at a body with two souls, it killed the soul with which it was *not* aligned (the horcrux).

    "anchored Harry to the living world through Voldemort" So basically Voldemort became a Horcrux for Harry??
