The English Patient | 1996 | R | - 7.7.5

This epic World War II romance has Ralph Fiennes as a dashing explorer and Kristin Scott Thomas as his adulterous lover.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Kissing, sexual innuendo, a few sex scenes (one time standing) with all scenes containing nudity, kissing, fondling clothed and unclothed body parts and sometimes thrusting. Full frontal female nudity seen twice and a few scenes show a woman s bare breasts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - War scenes with explosions, shooting, etc. Some scuffles, a man is hit in the head with a rifle butt, a man s thumb is severed while he screams and we see a pool of blood. A car crash and a couple of plane crashes with fireballs and gunfire; a plane nearly hits a man, after a plane crash a man has blood on his face and after a car explodes over a mine we see bloody, mangled bodies. Throughout the film we see a badly burned and disfigured man; we see his face a couple of times as a bloody pulp. A few scenes in an army hospital show bloody wounds and bedding.

LANGUAGE 5 - Four F-words, a couple of scatological references and anatomical references, a few mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
