    Content Type: Movie

    Under the Volcano follows the final day in the life of a self destructive British Consul, Geoffrey Firmin (Albert Finney, in an Oscar nominated tour de force) on the eve of World War II.

    Withering from alcoholism, Firmin stumbles through a small Mexican village, amid the 'day of the dead' festival, attempting to reconnect with his estranged wife (Jacqueline Bisset).

    John Huston's ambitious tackling of Malcolm Lory's towering novel was compared with his greatest works such as The Maltese Falcon, The African Queen, The Asphalt Jungle and Key Largo. This film also gave the incomparable Finney on of his most legendary roles.
