Product Description

Product Description

Winner of nine Academy Awards and almost every critic's heart, The English Patient (based on Michael Ondaatje's prizewinning novel of love and loss during World War II) is one of the most acclaimed films of modern times. Hana, a nurse (Juliette Binoche), tends to an archaeologist (Ralph Fiennes) who has been burnt to a crisp in a plane crash. As their relationship intensifies, he flashes back to his overwhelming passion for a married woman (Kristin Scott Thomas). Meanwhile, Hana begins a new romance with a man who defuses bombs (Naveen Andrews) and Willem Dafoe almost steals the show as the thumbless thief Caravaggio. The intricately layered flashback narrative, sounding the depths of the lovers' hearts, improves with repeated viewings--especially with the sharp picture and digital sound of the digital video disc.

Filmfan, I believe the name was, you should contact them again. Amazon did the same thing with me (switching one edition for the other), but I was able to prove that they had done it since I had the e-mail from my orginal order, which had the picture of the correct edition. They did apologize for making the switch, and claimed to not know how it happened, but I have trouble believing that. Anyway, they refunded my order, and also gave me an additional $20 credit.

Still, Amazon should not change people's orders without informing them, and I wish they would educate their customer service on the differences between video transfers, being one of the largest retailers of DVDs and Blu-Rays in the world.

I watched that film over and over and it gets better with time...What a beautiful love story ! Passion, betray, deepness, human relations...with marvelous landscapes and costumes. And so well played! Especially Kristin Scott Thomas and Ralph Fiennes...You can not imagine other actors in these roles. The sand is also a very important personage...some scenes are so intense that you will never forget them...For me, one of the best film ever. Juliette Binoche won an Oscar for her role and she deserved it but the only thing is that she is French and she was supposed to be a French-Canadian. So her accent is not exact. But probably noticed only by French speaking persons...

Love and Betrayal. God and Country. Courage and Frailty. The whole range of Human Condition is captured on a canvas of infinite sands and beige dreams.

This is a breathtaking film that got the Oscar acclaim it deserved. A Modern Classic - people of coming generations will talk of this film the same way we talk about CASABLANCA.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Though this Blu-ray version looks better than the previous DVD, it is a marginal improvement when viewed on a 1080p projector (mine is the Sony Pearl) at 8 feet width. Film grain is heavy and the print source is a bit dirty and gritty and slightly fuzzy. My guess is that very little was done to prepare this disc for release.

I wouldn't recommend this disc to most buyers unless you absolutely adore this film (as I do)

The sound in DTS-MA is excellent, though, and an does not disappoint.

By Bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER on Nov. 25 2013
Format: Blu-ray
Towards the end of the Second World War patients are being moved from one location to another. One mortally wounded patient is in such a condition that travel is impossible. A nurse traveling along with this patient finds an abandoned villa. They deposit the patient there and she waits for his demise before planning on catching up with the convoy. We also wait as the "English patient" slowly lets his history unfold forasmuch as he can remember. But wait someone else finds out about the English patient and is determined to help them remember. As time passes we are not sure that he ever forgot. You will have to watch the movie to see how it unfolds.

This is more of a psychological drama than it is an action movie. It's not that it moved slowly but it digresses as it moves in and out of flashbacks that you have to intricately put back together to find the full story; if there is a full story.

I have to confess that I have not read the book. However the extra information on the DVDs explains how they compared and contrasted the movie to the book; also they had to explain the differences that makes the movie work as it has to get a different sequence in place of the book. However not knowing any different I saw this is an excellent presentation.

After the publication of Michael Ondaatje's Booker-Prize-winning "English Patient," conventional wisdom soon held that the novel, while a masterpiece of fiction, was entirely untransferable to any other medium: too intricately layered seemed its narrative structure; too significant its protagonists' inner life; too rich its symbolism. Then along came Anthony Minghella, who reportedly read it in a single sitting and was so disoriented afterwards that he didn't even remember where he was -- but who called producer Paul Zaentz the very next morning and talked him into bringing the novel to the screen. Two major studios and several fights over the casting of key roles later, the result were an astonishing nine Oscars (Best Picture, Director - Anthony Minghella -, Supporting Actress - Juliette Binoche -, Cinematography, Editing, Art Direction, Costume Design, Original Score and Sound), as well as scores of other awards.

"The English Patient" is an epic tale of love and loss; of ownership, belonging and the bars erected thereto. It unites the stories of five people: Hungarian count Laszlo de Almasy (Ralph Fiennes), mistaken as English by a British Army medical unit in Italy after professing to have forgotten his identity; Hana (Juliette Binoche), Almasy's Canadian nurse; Katherine Clifton (Kristin Scott Thomas), his erstwhile lover; Kip (Naveen Andrews), a Sikh sapper and Caravaggio (Willem Dafoe), an ex-spy and thief.
