The English Patient

The English Patient ★★½

Meandering and somewhat arbitrarily plotted. I just didn't buy into this romance as I really didn't feel chemistry between Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas, though I'm guessing I'm utterly alone on that opinion since I was specifically told I should watch this movie to see the power of its romance. Juliette Binoche is a babe as usual but she has little to do in this film but quietly watch other people, speak softly and, occasionally, cry.

Most importantly, The English Patient exhibits some of the worst zoom work I've seen in a classically-shot film.
