Pin on THE ENGLISH PATIENT
But, within the book Hanna is a mad nurse obsessed with the health of the English man, yet is numb to thoughts of rape, war, or death. The reader is thrown into a villa then surrounded by flash memories of sand, war, love and betrayal. You will not remember those parts from the movie. They left all the good parts out. Simply breathtaking. The period-drama is ripe for sexual tension with massive, passionate payoff.

This theme was used, among others, for the famous scene where Juliette Binoche is hoisted up by rope in the torch-lit church.
I sent Anthony the piece but he called sex up saying: I want you to swing her! It became a joke between us. At the Oscars, when The English Patient won nine awards, we were still joking about this.
