Based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway.
“Set in Italy at the close of WWII, ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES centers on US Army Col. Richard Cantwell (Pierce Brosnan), a bonafide war hero with an acerbic wit, who faces news of his terminal illness with stubborn disregard. Determined to spend his final days in quiet solitude, he commandeers a military driver to take him to Venice, where he intends to revisit his favorite haunts and embark on one last, perfect duck hunt. But as Cantwell’s plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a beautiful aristocrat (Maria Valverde) offers hope, redemption, and an escape from the horrors of war.
Featuring major battlefield set pieces in vivid flashback, ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES explores the classic Hemingway themes of age, youth, love, and war against the beautiful backdrop of Venice.”
So far besides Pierce Brosnan, the cats also includes María Valverde and Laura Morante.
