Synopsis from Lionsgate
Set against the backdrop of post-war Italy, this story mirrors the complex transformation of his homeland. From Lamborghini’s modest beginnings building tractors to the infamous rivalry he shared with Enzo Ferrari, his unparalleled genius made him a true icon in the automobile industry. However, his passions also ignited emotional turmoil in his personal life, which was full of both romance and tragedy. Told through a tightly constructed narrative style and imaginative visual design, Lamborghini – The Legend is the true story of the man behind the machine. —Lionsgate
Trivia Question: Gabriel and Mira Sorvino have worked together in the past. Can you name the film?
“GO BACK TO YOUR TRACTOR!”
:grin: :razz: <3
Vroom! Thanks Stella for this scoop . The answer to your question is… Leningrad.
And we have a winner!
“Leningrad (2009) : Winter, 1941. World War II rages on as Nazi troops invade the Soviet Union and besiege the devastated city of Leningrad. Foreign journalists are quickly evacuated, but in the chaos that ensues, Kate Davies is left behind.”
The film starred Mira Sorvino, Gabriel Byrne, and the always wonderful Armin Mueller-Stahl (who is now 92 years old!) and, according to IMDB, was actually filmed in St. Petersburg, Russia. So strange, considering current events. :-/
