I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. To be honest, when I first heard of this movie, it seemed to be a terribly cheesy romantic feature. On top of that, it seemed to be another shameless attempt from the Weinstein brothers to sweep the Oscars, an attempt which was this time successful since it managed to win 9 Ac... read more

9 Academy Awards Winner, including the best film. One of the best movie of 20th Century, most unabashed and powerful love stories, using flawless performances, intelligent dialogue, crisp camera work, and loaded glances to attain a level of emotional connection that many similar films miss.

Beginning in the 1930's, "The English Patient" tells the story of Count Almásy who is a Hungarian map maker employed by the Royal Geographical Society to chart the vast expanses of the Sahara Desert along with several other prominent explorers. As World War II unfolds, Almásy enters into a world of love, betrayal, and politics that is later revealed in a series of flashbacks while Almásy is on his death bed after being horribly burned in a plane crash.

Movie Reviews (551-600) (50 movies items)

" There was an episode of "Seinfeld" where Elaine complained about how boring it all was - and I have to agree on that opinion. It is slowly paced and predictable. It wants to be a David Lean epic but lacks the grandiose story and I also thought it is boring - in places. It is a pretty package with nice nature, great cinematography and a solid cast though."
