A very good movie

To be honest, when I first heard of this movie, I thought it seemed to a terribly cheesy romantic feature. On top of that, it seemed to be another shameless attempts from the Weinstein brothers to sweep the Oscars, an attempt which was this time successful since it managed to win 9 Oscars including the Best Picture. So, with this in mind, I was rather skeptical at first but I still wanted to check... 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."

30 From 96: My Favorite Films From 1996 (30 movies items)

"For any of you out there that are fans of the Seinfeld television series, despite what Elaine says about this film, The English Patient is definitely worth see worthing. At least, even more so than Sack Lunch, that's for sure. That movie was pure trash. My apologies to anyone who is not a Seinfeld fan and therefore hasn't got a clue as to what this entry is talking about."
