Synopsis: Touched by genius. Cursed by madness. Blinded by love.
From acclaimed director Bernardo Bertolucci (The Last Emperor, Last Tango In Paris) comes a breathtaking film rich in passion, desire, and intrigue.
Shandurai (Thandie Newton; Beloved, Mission Impossible 2) is running from her past. After her husband is arrested for anti-government demonstrations in Africa, she flees to an enchanting villa in Rome where she gains employment working for an eccentric recluse Mr. Kinsky (David Thewlis; Seven Years In Tibet, The Island Of Dr. Moreau).
Kinsky soon becomes obsessed with Shandurai and the two find themselves in a web of attraction and denial, of awakening and discovery. But in exchange for her love, Shandurai asks one request of Kinsky - a request so powerful it means he would ask himself the ultimate question, "How far would you go for passion?"
