Product Description

Italian drama based on the novel by Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The film charts how a man was killed by two brothers who had sworn to kill him. Everyone in the village had heard the rumours of what they planned, some had dismissed them , others had tried to stop it happening but had got delayed or sidetracked bu events. In the end destiny took it's course, and by piecing together how it all happened the film creates an incredible story of honour and fatality mixed with humour and imagination.

I watched this film in the cinema as a teenager. I am now in my mid 40's and I still think about it and particularly the final scene where the husband finds the rejected bride and we realise the futility of everything that has gone before. This is one of the few times that I have loved the film more than the book. I just wish it would be released on DVD so that I could show it to my teenagers.

1987-france -cannes selection and jury prize ;
Based on a novella by Garcia Marquez;
director -Franceso Rosi
Cast -,Irene Papas,Ornella Muti,Antony Delon ,Rupert Everett;
This haunting and doomed but reverbrating renvenge drama set in the lush green vistas of colombia,south america is one of the great classics of french cinema adapted from the masterpiece written by Garcia Marquez .

This harrowing novel by Gabriel Marquez is brought to life by Franceso Redi in this unforgettable screen chronicle ,it is set in a Latin american village where a man called Nasar is knifed to death in the early hours of a hot and humid ,sultry colombian morning in cold blood .

The whole village is anticipating the event about to happen and nobody does anything to prevent it ,the movie is a testament to human failure to prevent evil and crime from taking place when you humanity posesses the full knoweldge of the consequences of what your inaction will result in and has the resources to prevent the offence but remains silent in complicit assent ,as this becomes a death foretold , a crime predicted yet allowed to happen , thus condoning the misdeed itself , and what can be more heinous indeed.

The story takes place as a bride[ornella muti] is sent back home on her wedding night ,as she is not a virgin,by her husband,and it is assumed instantly that the culprit is Nasar [antony Delon ],son of alain delon ] .
Delon indeed is the illicit lover and the mother of the bride and others [irene papas] ,are aware of the secretive love affair ,yet now that the honour is forefeited it is obligatory for the family honour to be redeemed.

CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD

starring

Rupert Everett, Ornella Muti, Gian Maria Volonte

A FRANCESCO ROSI FILM

Lush adaptation of Márquez's novel set in small-town Columbia which tells the tale of a rich and eccentric drifter (Everett) who courts a local girl (Muti). On their wedding night he discovers that his bride is not a virgin and returns her to her family. Her brothers are determined to kill her former lover according to that age-old custom of avenging your sister's honour. Told in a series of flashback and interview sequences, director Rosi exposes the guilt, hypocrisy and prejudice within the town as the dead man's best friend investigates his murder.
