The Legend of 1900 (Italian: La leggenda del pianista sulloceano) is a 1998 film directed by the Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore, starring Tim Roth. This is Tornatores 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 flashforward. Max Tooney, a musician, enters a secondhand music shop just as its closing, broke and badly in need of money. He has only a trumpet, which he sells for less than he had hoped. Clearly torn at parting from his prized possession, he asks to play it one last time. The shopkeeper agrees, and as the musician plays, the shopkeeper immediately recognizes the song from a broken record master he found inside a recently acquired secondhand piano. He asks who the piece is by, and Max tells him the story of 1900.
