Storyline

Traces the legendary author's life, from the images and memories of his early boyhood, to his tragic suicide at the age of sixty-two. We first meet Hemingway as a young boy dominated by the virile figure of his father, a doctor devoted to hunting and fishing. Hemingway next appears as an 18 year old ambulance driver during the World War I who is wounded on the front of Piave. In the hospital, he meets and falls in love with a young Red Cross nurse who will later become the model for his heroine in " A Farewell to Arms", a fictionalizes account of his experience as a young soldier coming to grips with the horrors of war. Hemingway becomes a foreign correspondent and travels to France, Italy and Spain. But soon abandons his journalistic career and settles in Paris to write novels and short stories. Interspersed throughout the story are Hemingway's encounters with an enigmatic woman of indeterminate age who becomes his closest confidant. She is the personification of death's shadow and ...

The last long Summer in Spain
19 September 2017 | by charles-paxton-martinSee all my reviews

Hemingway's long life probably could use a whole miniseries. My feeling is that they should have shot a lot of the film in Spain, for example in the beautiful mansion near Málaga called La Cónsula, towards the end of his life. This is detailed in a book by Tony Castro, and would have provided a closer look at Hemingway the man, who spent a summer there and managed to write a 120,000 word manuscript amongst other works, a lot of boozing and talking with the Spanish bullfighting élite, maharajas and Hollywood luminaries such as Lauren Bacall. A whole movie might come from this late period, and perhaps will someday.
