Winner of nine Oscars. A powerful and gripping love story based on Michael Ondaatje’s novel. A Canadian nurse (Juliette Binoche) nurses a man badly burned in a plane crash. Alone with him in an abandoned Italian monastery during World War Two, she slowly learns his past, drawing in the viewer as the story unfolds in flashbacks. There is breathtaking photography by John Seales.
