    English Patient, The [22]

    Movie Reviews
    Set in North Africa and Italy before and during World War II, This is the story of a pilot burned horribly in a plane crash on a flight out of the Egyptian desert.

    Flashing back in the movie, The pilot, Ralph Fiennes as Count Laszlo de Almásy, falls in love with a fellow pilot's wife. They carry on their love affair until war breaks out and the Nazis take over. The story consists of current (1945) Italy and flashes back to 1938 Cairo. The Italy story is the "English Patient" dying slowly and recalling the events that led to the plane crash.

    Pop Culture Note: If you saw the "Seinfeld" episode in which Elaine says: "Will you DIE already!?!", You will find yourself saying the same thing. Still, the story is very compelling. The lighting in the movie is very brown. Even the green parts of Italy come across very brown and barren. Excellent date movie. Extra 3 points worth of tear-jerking at the end. {BB}

    Funny side note: Of all the Billy Crystal Academy Awards (Oscars) film montages, none had as big a payoff as the 1997 effort that ended with him sitting in an "English Patient" biplane with David Letterman, who had bombed as Oscar host the year before. Letterman started babbling about Uma and Oprah as the plane crashed through the screen.
