[REL] The Last Leaf (1983) [USA]

Postby Guest » Mon Dec 15, 2008 12:37 am  0 likes

I hope it's the right place to ask for help. I'm searching desperately a movie an elder lady has asked for.
She is not very healthy and she would like to see this movie again.

From her description it could be a movie from USA or UK, probably B&W.

The story is around Xmas time, the girl is very sick and is going to die.
But she is promising her parents that she will not die as long there is a leave on
the tree in front of her window.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks to all trying to help.

The plot is from a short story by O. Henry. Many adaptations of this have been made, in several languages.

Try this one: The Last Leaf http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0448227/

If it is as emuler has suggested it's certainly available on DVD.......
http://www.amazon.com/Henrys-Full-House ... B000HT3PPQ
..........which means it's probably lurking on the internet somewhere.
Let's wait for confirmation from willow :)

IMDb wrote:An Easter Parable: As lingering pneumonia takes her will to live, a young girl decides that she will die when the last leaf drops from a dying vine outside her window. Her neighbor, an elderly artist frustrated by his inability to paint what is in his heart, follows the example of the Savior and makes the ultimate sacrifice to save her life. In doing so, he creates the masterpiece he has been struggling to paint.
