Ralph Fiennes stars as an archaeologist exploring the Sahara at the onset of World War II in this spectacularly engrossing drama. Horribly burned during a plane crash, the scientist finds himself in Italy, holed up in a deserted building with a nurse and a thief.His story of traffic love then unfolds through flashbacks.

This finely crafted film, directed by Anthony Minghella, masterfully builds toward an emotion-packed climax. Also stars Juliette BinocheWillem Dafoe, Kristin Scott ThomasNaveen Andrews and Colin Firth. Rated R.
