Based on Ann Patchett’s best-selling novel, Bel Canto is a dramatic love story that follows Roxane Coss (Julianne Moore), a famous American soprano, who travels to South America to give a private concert at the birthday party of rich Japanese industrialist, Katsumi Hosokawa (Ken Watanabe). Just as a handsome gathering of local dignitaries convenes at Vice-President Ruben Ochoa’s mansion, including the French Ambassador and his wife, the house is taken over by guerrillas, demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. Their only contact with the outside world is through a negotiator with the Red Cross.

While they are confined to the house, the hostages and their captors, who speak different languages, are forced to find ways to communicate. Music, especially the beautiful arias performed by Moore’s character, sparks a shared sense of camaraderie and even love, uniting the disparate housemates as they form unexpected bonds, overcome their differences, and discover their shared humanity.
