having seen bits and pieces of this film over the years, I finally watched from start to finish and am glad I did.
an engaging mix of malice, romance and mystery.
This movie is the worst. The protagonist is a Nazi collaborator sleeping with his (British) commander's wife. The cinematography was nice, but it can't make up for a terrible story.
What a long movie & I had a hard time watching it. Think I will give it a try anorher time, but for now I must return it as its due & has a hold. Will update when I re-borrow!
Absolutely boring and a waste of time. I will give the movie credit for the filmography. Considering that the movie was filmed in 1996, the movie holds up well to high definition t.v. where it relates to the special effects. I was left wondering though: "how come this movie won so many awards"?
Truly a masterpiece. Ralph Fiennes is a brilliant actor.
This is a 1996 romantic drama directed by Anthony Minghella from his own script based on the novel of the same name by Michael Ondaatje.
The film follows four dissimilar people brought together at an Italian villa during the Italian Campaign of World War II.
One of those people is an unrecognisably burned man—--the titular patient, whose story occurs during the North African Campaign and centres on the incremental revelations of the patient's actions prior to his injuries, and the emotional effects of these revelations on the other characters.
Although it is a powerful and moving story, I don't really understand why the "English patient" comes to love Katharine so much.
The film does fail to depict this puzzle because Katharine doesn't interest me at all.
This is an overall engaging movie with a good performance from Ralph Fiennes as the title character. In addition there is a good score from Gabriel Yared.
At the close of WWII, a young nurse tends to a badly-burned plane crash victim. His past is shown in flashbacks, revealing an involvement in a fateful love affair.
A beautiful story...definitely a movie worth watching.
This is one of the best movies I`ve ever enjoyed. The acting was wonderful and the storyline was so emotional. The movie stayed with me for years.
