Product description

Product Description

This BBC adaptation of the Joseph Conrad story stars Colin Firth as an ambitious Englishman who returns to South America (where he was born) to take over his father's silver mine. He will stop at nothing to make the mine work, threatening to destroy the community around him to satisfy his greed. Conrad's story looks at themes of rampant colonialism (as he did in 'Heart of Darkness'), greed and honour.

From the Back Cover

This epic production of Joseph Conrad's classic novel weaves a story of romance and intrigue to create a world in miniature in which the nature of honour, greed and colonialism are explored, especially in their effects on one individual, Nostromo, 'our man', Claudio Amendola.
