A very good movie

I know it may seem like a terribly romantic movie but it is actually really good. The directing is very competent and all the actors involved give amazing perfomances. Anyway, a movie with Ralph Fiennes or Juliette Binoche is always worth it.

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.

"A War Drama. Cinematography by John Seale. This film is a about biography of a critically burnt man(English patient) and his flashbacks into his life. “We were confused whether to go anamorphic or 1:85, then was convinced with 1:85 Because its a movie about people in desert not about a desert with people” - John Seale "

2012 Movie Diary - August (33 movies items)

"Underwhelming. Didn't really get it.. Also, how was Juliette Binoche (who won a well-deserved Oscar for this film) only a supporting role? She was in like, 70% of the film!! Kristin Scott Thomas was much less of a leading actress than her.. But both and Ralph Fiennes gave brilliant performances! I liked the script, could've had a bit more impact but what can you do? Oh! I also liked Naveen Andrews even though I detest him in Lost. "
