The English Patient is a lengthy but rewarding epic that has the visual splendor of classic Hollywood romances. But its storytelling is more complex and the romance is decidedly more sensually explicit. Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas are excellent as the two lovers whose romance forms the heart of the narrative. Juliette Binoche is good and Naveen Andrews is pretty cool as a mine specialist. Fans of sweeping wartime romances will find much to appreciate here.
