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.
View all The English Patient reviews
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.

Ehkä siksi, että kaikki nämä itsessään todella yllätyksettömät elementit on kuitenkin toteutettu ammattitaidolla, erityisesti aavikkokohtauksia on tyydyttävää katsoa, soundtrackia kuunt"
