More about the movie on:

The Legend of 1900 is a 1998 drama film directed by Giuseppe Tornatore and starring Tim Roth, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Mélanie Thierry. It was Tornatore's first English-language film. The film is inspired by a theater monologue, Novecento, by Alessandro Baricco.

The film was nominated for a variety of awards worldwide, winning several for its soundtrack.

The story is told in medias res as a series of flashbacks. Max Tooney, a musician, enters a secondhand music shop just before closing time, broke and badly in need of money.

He asks who the piece is by, and Max tells him the story of 1900...
