Paulo Coelho on Nexo+

On November 29th, the film Paulo Coelho – My Transiberian, produced by Elisabetta Sgarbi, will be available on Nexo+ for all subscribers.

It tells the journey made by Paulo Coelho on the legendary train that connects Moscow to Vladivostok: the Trans-Siberian: 9,289 kilometres to be experienced in depth, between historical suggestions, landscapes extraordinary, symbols and atmospheres of an Orient that is still largely mysterious.

A film linked to one of Paulo Coelho’s most successful novels, Aleph.

<<’I’ve written a book about a mental institution,’ I said to my 85-year-old father. ’It’s a fictional work, but there are a couple of pages where I speak as myself. It means going public about the time I spent in mental hospitals.’ My father looked me in the eye and said: ’Are you sure it won’t harm you in any way?’ ’Yes, I’m sure.’ ’Then go ahead. I’m tired of secrets’.>>
