Winner of an outstanding nine Academy Awards, The English Patient is the sweeping World War II romantic epic that's being compared to such legendary films as Casablanca and Doctor Zhivago. After a badly burned pilot (Ralph Fiennes) is pulled from the wreckage of his plane in the Sahara Desert, he's placed in the care of an army nurse (Juliette Binoche) and identified only as "the English patient." As his memory slowly returns, a passionate and consuming love affair with a married woman (Kristin Scott Thomas) is unveiled, and lives from both the past and the present become inextricably altered. Set against breath taking backdrops in North Africa and Italy, this film is a riveting cinematic masterpiece that stirs the heart and touches the soul like no other film in years!
This movie is one of romance combined with a good story line which even leaves the blokes thinking they enjoyed it.
Excellent screeen adaptation.
