Oscar Nominee Tim Roth is David, a nurse who works with terminally ill patients. Efficient and dedicated to his profession, he develops strong and even intimate relationships with each person he cares for. But outside of his work it becomes clear that David is the host of some troubling thoughts and behaviour. He needs each patient as much as they need him. The award winning director of 'After Lucia' returns with a sober but staggering slice of human drama that captures relationships of varying kinds and the bounds to which they are limited.
There were no subtitles for this film, which fine if you can hear OK but a waste of time if you are hard of hearing. So I have only given it one star as I hardly watched any of it. Distributors of such DVDs only have themselves to blame if their films are rated lowly for being so indifferent to those whose hearing may not be as good as theirs.
However, I have learnt my lesson and will now check all films on my list instead of assuming they have English-language subtitles.
