Plot

'Across the river and into the trees' is a film by Paula Ortiz which is set in Venice (Italy) after World War II. Colonel Richard Cantwell is a hero of the US Army who is tormented by war. Cantwell confronts and accepts the news that he is terminally ill with complete indifference.

As Cantwell's plans begin to unravel, a lucky encounter with a young Italian aristocrat begins to rekindle his hope of recovery. In addition, this romance manages to revitalize his spirit and makes him dream of a future, even though he knows he will not live much longer due to his illness.

The film captures a fleeting moment of immortality where time stands still and contains Hemingway's great themes: love, war, youth and old age. The colonel knows that he is sentenced to death in the short term because of his terminal illness and wants to live his last hours fully enjoying everything.

This drama is set in the 40s, it's written by Peter Flannery and directed by Paula Ortiz, who tells the story of a sick military man in this adaptation of the homonymous novel by Ernest Hemingway. Its cast will be led by Leiv Schreiber, Josh Hutcherson, Matilda de Angelis, Laura Morante and Danny Huston, among others. This cast will retell the story Hemingway once created about love, live and time.

Trivia

Hemingway's worst novel

Howard Hawks joked early in Ernest Hemingway's career that he adapted Hemingway's worst novel into a film to make it better, which was "To Have and Have Nots," starred by Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Years later, 'Across the river and into the trees' has occupied the place of Hemingway's worst book according to critics and fans. It has come to receive multiple horrible reviews and very low sales, but he quickly fixed his career with the novel 'The Old Man and the Sea', which also tells the story of an old man who has flashbacks about his youth and rediscovers his strengths, with some action instead of romantic drama.

The dream movie

For years, this movie had been a dream project for several high-profile actors and directors. John Huston tried to stage it several times, and Burt Lancaster desperately wanted to play the aging military colonel. Even at one point, Robert Altman was on the verge of achieving it with Roy Scheider, Julie Christie and Greta Scacchi as main characters, but the low financing ended up not making it possible at the last moment.
