The English Patient

by admin on December 3, 2012

The first time I saw it I thought it was a great movie, like everyone else. But the second time I saw it, over ten years later, I realized that not only is the screenplay amazing, and the movie well paced, but that the soundtrack was extremely important to its success. Watch this clip and see the emotional climax at 2:50.  The music takes it over the top into an emotional frenzy for a brief moment. This movie has moved up my list of favorite all time movies to number 2, right behind Casablanca…speaking of which, the similarities are uncanny. Pre-WWII love affair that ends tragically, with Nazis thrown about. Loyalty, cheating, and most of all, a man keeping his honor above all else. They just don’t make em like this anymore.
