Based on one of Henry James's most acclaimed novellas, THE ASPERN PAPERS is directed by Julien Landais, starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Joely Richardson and Vanessa Redgrave.

 Set in Venice in the late 19th century, it tells of an American editor determined to get his hands on the letters his icon, the Romantic poet Jeffrey Aspern, wrote to his beautiful lover and muse, Juliana Bordereau. Juliana lives in a Venetian palazzo with her niece Miss Tina, who she seems to control and Morton tries to manipulate. But when the ambitious adventurer trifles with Miss Tina’s affections she learns to see through his scheme.

 The Aspern Papers tells a story of obsession, grandeur lost and dreams of Byronic adventures.

The film was shot where Henry James actually wrote it - on original locations in Venice.

 From script stage on, French director Julien Landais was supported by Executive Producer and recent Academy Award winner James Ivory.
