The English Patient is a tragic love story between a Hungarian map-maker and a newlywed English woman set against the backdrop of WW2 and danger in North Africa and Italy at the time. Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas star as the doomed lovers, Almásy and Katharine, while Colin Firth plays the jilted Geoffrey. Well-acted, somber and at times appropriately painful and wrenching, the story is told through the recollections of a badly-burned Almásy as he struggles to cope with the consequences of that relationship while in a hospital bed attended to by a sympathetic nurse. For those who enjoy war dramas with a sad love story within.Erik M.
