Desire Is Stronger Than The Fear Of Death.
A young woman, Elvira (Leonor Watling, Talk To Her, Bad Education) tries to recover from the traumatic loss of her father and the imprisonment of her husband amidst political and social turmoil in post civil war Madrid. To support her family, Elvira works as a maid for Pablo (Leonardo Sbaraglia, Carmen: The City Of No Limits), a mysterious Argentinean mogul, where she is reintroduced to a world of beauty, culture, and passion that was once lost. A passionate yet ill-fated affair between Pablo and Elvira ensues amidst turbulent political circumstances. Tensions come to fore when Elvira learns that Pablo is assisting the escape of high ranking Nazi officials and her husband, Julio (Ernesto Alterio, The Other Side Of The Bed) will soon be released from prison. Beyond Desire also features Cecilia Roth (Talk To Her, All About My Mother) and Rosa Maria Sarda (Shanghai Spell, All About My Mother).
