The English Patient - Review
(1996)

Set in the waning days of World War II, The English Patient tells the tale of Count László de Almásy (Ralph Fiennes), a Hungarian cartographer who is badly injured in a mysterious plane crash. As Hana (Juliette Binoche), a French-Canadian nurse, tends to her patient, the Count's tragic past is revealed through a series of flashbacks. While new love blooms in the present for Hana with Kip (Naveen Andrews), a British-Indian lieutenant, we learn of the passionate, ill-fated affair that changes the course of the Count's life and ultimately leads to his downfall.
