The Legend of 1900 (1998)

()

“La leggenda del pianista sull’oceano”

Drama, Music, Romance

The Legend of 1900 is drama film directed by Giuseppe Tornatore and starring Tim Roth, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Mélanie Thierry. It was Tornatore’s first English-language film. The film is inspired by Novecento, a monologue by Alessandro Baricco.

On New Year’s Day 1900, Danny (Bill Nunn), a crew member on an ocean liner, finds a deserted infant and decides to adopt him, nicknaming him “1900.” As an adult, the eccentric 1900 (Tim Roth) grows into a remarkable musician aboard the boat. Rumors of his brilliant piano playing eventually reach the shore, and his pal Max (Pruitt Taylor Vince) believes that success surely awaits 1900 on land. The only problem, however, is that the enigmatic pianist is loath to embrace life away from the ship.
