Germany German (Deutsch)

Paul Edgecomb und seine Kollegen sind Wärter im Todestrakt eines Gefängnisses in den 30ern. Paul versieht seinen Job zwar immer noch mit der größtmöglichen Menschlichkeit, doch er wird zunehmend zynischer, da er ständig Menschen sterben sieht. Außerdem ist er krank. Da kommt ein neuer Delinquent in den Trakt: John Coffey, ein farbiger Riese von friedlichster Bauart, der im Dunkeln Angst hat. Wie sich herausstellt, hat Coffey heilende Fähigkeiten, die auch Paul kennenlernt. Zunehmend gerät er in Zweifel, ob dieser Gigant sterben soll, vor allem da er die Morde, wegen der er verurteilt ist, nicht begangen zu haben scheint. Doch der Stuhl wartet und Coffeys Gabe droht für immer zu verschwinden ...

La Ligne verte

Paul Edgecomb, pensionnaire centenaire d'une maison de retraite, est hanté par ses souvenirs. Gardien-chef du pénitencier de Cold Mountain en 1935, il était chargé de veiller au bon déroulement des exécutions capitales en s'efforcant d'adoucir les derniers moments des condamnés. Parmi eux se trouvait un colosse du nom de John Coffey, accusé du viol et du meurtre de deux fillettes. Intrigué par cet homme candide et timide aux dons magiques, Edgecomb va tisser avec lui des liens très forts.

Il miglio verde

E' il racconto che Paul Edgecomb fa all'amica Elaine Connelly in una casa di riposo. Sono passati circa sessanta anni da quando lavorava come capo delle guardie del braccio della morte nel penitenziario di Could Mountain. Durante la grande depressione, nel carcere del sud degli Usa, Edgecomb si occupava di quattro assassini che attendevano di compiere la loro ultima passeggiata lungo il 'Miglio verde', il corridoio rivestito di linoleum verde che li avrebbe condotti nella stanza della sedia elettrica. Fra questi c'era anche John Coffrey, un ragazzone nero condannato per l'omicidio di due gemelline di nove anni. Nonostante avesse le dimensioni e la forza per uccidere chiunque, Coffrey aveva un carattere semplice e ingenuo: era davvero lui il colpevole?
