In the film, The Undoing’s Matilda De Angelis plays an 18-year-old Italian contessa called Renata. Liev’s character falls in love with her. 

Based on the last full-length novel by Ernest Hemingway, the movie captures a fleeting moment of immortality where time stands still.

The actor was pictured hobbling on crutches earlier this month as he headed to the doctors in Veneto, where he is said to have undergone keyhole surgery before returning to Venice in the evening.  

Back in January, the actor told a fan on Twitter he had just had knee surgery and he is said to have aggravated the injury further after filming a fight scene. 

MailOnline contacted Liev’s representatives for comment at the time.
