Academy Award – BEST PICTURE
Laszlo Almasy (Ralph Fiennes) flies back to the cave, where he left his wounded girlfriend Katherine (Kristin Scott Thomas), and finds her dead. He carries her body out, and puts it in the plane. The plane ends up being shot down causing Laszlo Almasy’s severely burned face.
He finally dies after telling his story to nurse Hana (Juliette Binoche) while she cares for him by his side, and she leaves with Caravaggio (Willem Dafoe) to go back to her country.
