English Patient

This film is almost perfect. It had two of the most powerful themes to explore, Love and War. And it told them with skill and excellence. It contained Passion, Revenge, and Remorse.

But the visual input and the creation of moods bring out the beauty and the tragedy of the story marvellously.

And, one cannot talk about The English Patient without talking about Gabriel Yared's beautiful score.

In a style reminiscent of the best of David Lean, this romantic love story sweeps across the screen with epic proportions equal to the vast desert regions against which it is set. It's a film which purports that one does not choose love, but rather that it's love that does the choosing, regardless of who, where or when..
