It’s nearing the end of WWII and a burn victim, Count Laszlo, is dying. Rather than endure the long trip to… somewhere else… this lovely lady named Hana decides to stay with him in an abandoned church until he dies. He doesn’t remember much, but the arrival of a guy who believes Laszlo was giving information to the Germans, encourages (or strongly recommends) him to share his story, one of a love affair.
It’s got a really great cast (Ralph Fiennes, Colin Firth, Kristen Scott Thomas and Willem Dafoe) and it won 9 Oscars and it’s very sweet and sad and there are quite a few naked shots but that’s about it. I was a little bored, couldn’t really get into it and I didn’t feel connected to any of the characters. Safe to say I’m glad they cut down the length; the original went for 4 hours!
