      The words that describe best the movie “The English Patient” is magical and fascinating. This movie, which was nominated for 12 Oscars and won 9 of them, is the director’s Anthony Minghella best movie.

      What is so fascinating about this movie is that it consists of two love stories - one based in the present and the other in the past - which interlink


      together with excellent results. Another great aspect is that it was filmed in a unique way giving attention to every detail in an excellent manner.

      Juliette Binoche ended up winning an Oscar for her supporting role in this movie. Personally I was much more impressed by Kristin Scott Thomas contribution. Ralph Fiennes contribution cannot be ignored. It is a true pity that both of ...


      • them ended up without an Oscar.

        Juliette Binoche’s Oscar had to undergo ‘treatment’ after her son enjoyed playing with it, leaving it tarnished and in a bad state. The Oscar Academy did this job for free, as per agreement with everyone who wins this prestigious award.

        It seems that at some point in time Demi Moore and Sean Connery were related to this project.

        Ralph Fiennes make up took about 5 hours to be applied. He insisted on the full body make up, even if filming was focused most of the time on his face.

        “The English Patient” is a unique type of movie which we don’t see a lot like it coming out from Hollywood. It is a modern version of “Gone with the Wind” Minghella’s style!
