About the novel
a winter tale is a 1983 magical realism novel written by Mark Helprin. It unfolds in a mythical New York City, marked differently from reality, and in an Edwardian industrial period, close to the turn of the 20th century.
Their official trailer shows us that while Peter enters a house in order to rob, he meets a young woman playing the piano. She then realizes that he has a gun and tells him about it, to which he cynically replies “I was robbing the house.” However, in the same cynical tone she asks him if she still intends to do it, but he replies with a negative. To which she concludes, “Well, I suppose it would be polite to offer you a cup of tea.” It was that the first and captive meeting of him.
a winter tale is a fantasy, drama and romance film that includes time travel; produced in 2014; title that ROOM Max commissioned to add to your catalog this June.
